AHFW’s Top 20 Films of 2020: #13 ‘Sorry We Missed You’

13. “Sorry We Missed You” – Winston Churchill said, “Never give in.  Never, never, never.”  For Abbie and Ricky Turner (Debbie Honeywood and Kris Hitchen), that’s easier said than done.  Abbie’s an at-home care worker who runs herself ragged all over Tyne and Wear, England, and Ricky works for a delivery company – with long hours and tricky stipulations – that treats him like an indentured servant.  With debt climbing higher than their eyeballs, no free time, but plenty of exhaustion, this family of four suffers the consequences of dire employment realities in director Ken Loach’s (“I, Daniel Blake”(2016)) disheartening feature about today’s economic squeeze on the working class.  Raw and relatable, this impactful movie will leave you as fatigued as the Turners.

⭐⭐⭐ 1/2  out of  ⭐⭐⭐⭐
