Sorry We Missed You

Directed by Ken Loach
Year: 2019
Running Time: 100 minutes
Country: U.K.
Language: English

The British working class is once again the empathetic subject of Ken Loach’s SORRY WE MISSED YOU, a wrenching, intimate family drama that exposes the dark side of the so-called “gig economy”.

Ricky, a former laborer, and his home-attendant wife Abby—who lost their home in the 2008 financial crash—are desperate to get out of their financial distress. When an opportunity comes up for Ricky to work as his own boss as a delivery driver, they sell their only asset, Abby’s car, to trade it in for a shiny new white van and the dream that Ricky can work his way up to someday owning his own delivery franchise.

But the couple find their lives are quickly pushed further to the edge by an unrelenting work schedule, a ruthless supervisor and the needs of their two teenage children. Capturing the sacred moments that make a family as well as the acts of desperation they need to undertake to make it through each day, this universal story is skillfully and indelibly told with unforgettable performances and a searing script by Loach’s long-time collaborator Paul Laverty.

“FIVE STARS! Ken Loach raises his game yet further with this gut-wrenching tale of a delivery worker driven to the brink...It’s fierce, open and angry, unironised and unadorned... This brilliant film will focus minds.”


“Critic’s Pick. Brutally moving... [Ken Loach is] one of Earth’s most venerable and venerated directors. He’s almost without peer as a filmmaker formidably committed to exposing the sins of our wages... You believe this family. You believe in them. There are also all kinds of meaningful, seemingly disposable smart details... Globalism’s faceless grind couldn’t be more local, more personal... The movie’s as pungent as PARASITE... But life: that’s the tragedy.”


“Wonderfully acted with grit, humor and sensitivity... authentically heartbreaking.”


“It’s difficult to imagine a more socially engaged or powerful condemnation of the exploitative gig economy than Ken Loach’s SORRY WE MISSED YOU.”


“At age 82, [Ken Loach is] doing some of his strongest work in Sorry We Missed You, a drama of such searing human empathy and quotidian heartbreak that its powerful climactic scenes actually impede your breathing... This is an expertly judged and profoundly humane movie.... You’d have to be made of stone not to be moved to your core by it.”


“[Ken Loach is] the Bernie Sanders of filmmakers.”

Kino Marquee is a new initiative that creates virtual theaters for temporarily closed art house cinemas so they can offer their audiences the opportunity to see at home the films that would otherwise be playing on the big screen.

When the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the art house film industry became evident, we at Kino Lorber immediately thought about how we could help our independent theater partners across the country. We cannot release the kind of films we do without their support. So we wanted to find a way to work in partnership with them to help ensure that they will still be there after we all come out the other side. The Kino Marquee initiative offers a chance for these theaters to make money while their doors are closed.

Independent theaters need our support now more than ever. By buying a virtual “ticket” to watch Sorry We Missed You on Kino Marquee, you’ll be directly supporting your local art house cinema. All revenue is being shared between distributor and exhibitor just as if you bought your ticket at the theater box office.

You can watch on your computer, phone, or tablet, or cast to your Google Chromecast or Smart TV. You can also download the Kino Now app for Roku or Apple TV (requires tvOS 9.0 or later) and watch the film there. See below for more detailed informatioin about the app options.

Very good question! If you’re landing on this page, we ask that you only rent the film if you are a customer of this theater. We are rapidly expanding the program to art house theaters in other cities, so we urge you to wait to watch Bacurau when it is available locally and support the theater in your community. We also thank you for your cooperation in not sharing the link to this page beyond the community in which this theater is located. Let’s work together to keep all independent theaters healthy in this time of great uncertainty.

Request a local screening here.

Sorry We Missed You opened in New York on March 6, less than a week before theaters started shutting down. It was scheduled to expand to dozens of cities in the coming weeks. Reviews had already hit. The theaters had been running trailers for weeks. We wanted to honor our commitment to those theaters and not let all those efforts go to waste. Sorry We Missed You is also a film about the precarious nature of life in the gig economy, a theme that is unfortunately all too relevant in this moment of global crisis.
