The venerable craftsman of penetrating working-class dramas trains his lens on the gig economy in this emotional tale of a blue-collar household struggling to make ends meet in the north of England. Family man Ricky believes that, with his nose-to-the-grind work ethic, becoming a self-employed delivery driver will turn his clan’s financial fortunes around. Timely and topical, this everyman tale exposes the true cost of so-called entrepreneurial opportunity in a system rigged against the little guy.
“Sorry We Missed You is engrossing and bluntly persuasive.”
