Hollywood and Beyond

June 2023

On Wednesday 21st of June at 1:30 pm we will screen this film at the Meeting room, Watergardens Management Centre’s office, next to Specsavers shop.

Sorry We Missed You is a 2019 film written by Paul Laverty and directed by Ken Loach. Some of you may remember another Ken Loach film we showed a few years ago: The Angel’s Share.

 Hoping that self-employment through the gig economy can solve their financial woes, a hard-up UK delivery driver and his wife struggling to raise a family, end up trapped in the vicious circle of this modern-day form of labour exploitation.

Not an easy subject, but as usual Loach’s direction, and Laverty’s writing make it an excellent film.
