Saturday Afternoon at the Movies – Sorry We Missed You

Saturday, October 31, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Watch the film any time before the discussion–or enjoy the discussion and be persuaded to view it after! The British working class is once again the empathetic subject of Ken Loach’s Sorry We Missed You, a wrenching, intimate family drama that exposes the dark side of the so-called “gig economy”.

Ricky and his family have been fighting an uphill battle against debt since the 2008 financial crash. An opportunity to wrestle back some independence appears with a shiny new van and the chance to run a franchise as a self-employed delivery driver. It’s hard work, and his wife’s job is no easier. The family unit is strong, but when Ricky and his wife are pulled in different directions, everything comes to breaking point. Village member Suzanne I. High will host a discussion of the film via Zoom this Saturday at 3:00 PM.
