Sorry We Missed You

Drama


 

A man and his wife struggle to raise a family burdened by the vicious cycle of modern day labour exploitation.

There's a bleak realism to "Sorry We Missed You" rarely found in modern movies. It's a genuinely moving family drama that presents an important commentary about the daily struggle faced by families not just in the UK, but all over the world. The misery is relentless and the slow burn can be tedious, but the director's message is clear; this is a story about the debasing cruelty of capitalist economies and the devastating effect it can have on hard-working, honest people. A sorry state.
