Sorry We Missed You Directed by Ken Loach

Critics reviews

Natalia Stonebanks gives a remarkably self-effacing, Linda Manz-ish performance in her few brief scenes. Is she a professional actor or someone who was just hanging around? Everyone does a seamless job here, especially the family and the belligerent delivery boss, a frightening guard dog of a human (Ross Brewster). But this odd girl who left town stuck in my mind.

As in all Loach’s best work, the strong, grounded, naturalistic performances prevent the film becoming overly didactic, ensuring that it succeeds as stirring, plausible, relevant drama about the severely constrained options facing far too many in Britain today.
