First UK Trailer for Ken Loach's Delivery Drama 'Sorry We Missed You'
"This decides who lives, and who dies." Entertainment One UK has debuted the first official UK trailer for Ken Loach's latest film Sorry We Missed You, not to be confused with Sorry To Bother You. This initially premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in competition just a few months ago, and it's also playing at the Sydney Film Festival next. The indie drama is a follow-up to Loach's acclaimed Palme d'Or winning film I, Daniel Blake, with the same screenwriter. This time the focus is on a modern British family struggling to get by - the father takes a job as a delivery driver and feels the stress increase as he tries to make ends meet. The film stars Kris Hitchen, Debbie Honeywood, Rhys Stone, Katie Proctor, and Ross Brewster. It's a strong film, about how terrible capitalism is and how much stress comes from trying to keep our lives stable.
