(Ken Loach, UK 2019, 100 min., DCP)
Labor Film Series | Rochester Premiere. Our tribute to Ken Loach continues with his latest feature film. Sorry We Missed You picks up where I, Daniel Blake left off exploring workers’ lives under the stress of late-stage capitalism. Desperate for work, family man Ricky Turner applies to be a “franchised” delivery man, under a restrictive and punitive contract to an Amazon-like supply company. Late deliveries, car trouble, and long hours mount as Ricky and his wife are pulled in different directions. The film premiered at Cannes earlier this year, and the Dryden is one of the first American theaters to bring this film to audiences.
