The touching new Ken Loach film and Cannes competitor Sorry We Missed You hits Czech cinemas this week, and it’s one of the director’s best films to date.

From writer Paul Laverty, the brilliant mind behind Loach’s 2016 Cannes Palme d’Or winner I, Daniel Blake, Sorry We Missed You is a similarly moving and emotional insight into a precariat working class family on the brink of poverty in the North of England.

In a desperate attempt to make ends meet, father Ricky (Kris Hitchin) becomes a delivery driver. But his hard work is soon taken advantage of and the desperate struggle for financial survival slowly begins to affect his family life.

Loach is no stranger to such subject matter and delivers a film that is as equally disturbing and upsetting as the previous I, Daniel Blake. He is a director whose films are always relevant and often portray stories of the working class struggling under socio-economic crisis.

Sorry We Missed You hits Czech cinemas on Thursday, November 7th thanks to Film Europe label Be2Can distribution, Catch a screening in Prague’s Edison Filmhub this weekend.
