Sorry We Missed You

I watched this movie primarily because it was done by the director of the fantastic I, Daniel Blake.   Like that film, this film does a masterful job at showing a snapshot in time of people struggling in life.  In a sense this film may have done too good of a job depicting the struggles in life because at times it felt like more of a documentary and less of a film.   I hate to say it like this but the film lacked what the previous film had.

Movie title: Sorry We Missed You

Movie description: From the Director of I Daniel Blake (Ken Loach) comes another hard hitting dose of reality. Ricky and his family have been fighting an uphill struggle 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 as a carer is no easier. The family unit is strong but when both are pulled in different directions everything comes to breaking point.
