Full US Trailer for Ken Loach's Work-Life Drama 'Sorry We Missed You'
"I never thought it would be this difficult." Zeitgeist Films has revealed another new official US trailer for Ken Loach's latest film Sorry We Missed You, which will be in US theaters starting in March of next year. This initially premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in competition earlier this summer, and it played at the Toronto, Zurich, Hamburg, and Busan Film Festivals. 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 they tell a story of a British family struggling to get by - the father takes a job as a "zero-hour", "self-employed" 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. This is a solid new trailer, capturing the essence of the film and how hard it is to keep things afloat these days in an ever-more-capitalistic society. I am amused by the fact that this has subtitles because Americans can't always understand the way British people talk. Aha.
Here's the official US trailer for Ken Loach's Sorry We Missed You, direct from Zeitgeist's YouTube:
From the award-winning team behind I, Daniel Blake, comes the film Sorry We Missed You - a powerful exploration of the contemporary world of work, the gig economy and the challenges faced by one family trying to hold it all together.
