Here’s a new trailer for Sorry We Missed You, from its American distributor.

Arriving in UK cinemas tomorrow is Sorry We Missed You, the new film from director Ken Loach, that’s been penned by Paul Laverty. The pair collaborated on the terrific I, Daniel Blake of course, and the new film has already been earning rave reviews.

The film is also getting a US theatrical release, and a new trailer for the American market has thus landed. It’s been distributed by Zeitgeist Films in the US (Entertainment One is giving the film its UK release), and here’s the trailer that it’s just unveiled…

The film’s US synopsis reads…

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, a former laborer, and his home-attendant wife Abby—who lost their home in the 2008 financial crash—are desperate to get out of their financial distress. When an opportunity comes up for Ricky to work as his own boss as a delivery driver, they sell their only asset, Abby’s car, to trade it in for a shiny new white van and the dream that Ricky can work his way up to someday owning his own delivery franchise. But the couple find their lives are quickly pushed further to the edge by an unrelenting work schedule, a ruthless supervisor and the needs of their two teenage children. Capturing the sacred moments that make a family as well as the acts of desperation they need to undertake to make it through each day, this universal story is skillfully and indelibly told with unforgettable performances and a searing script by Loach’s long-time collaborator Paul Laverty.

As we said, it’s in UK cinemas this very week.
