Ken Loach’s superb swipe at zero-hours Britain

Not sure if you remember I, Daniel Blake, it was the ELFs film in September 2017 … its director Ken Loach has got another social drama for us now.

SORRY WE MISSED YOU is our August film, Loach presented it at the Cannes Film Festival last year …  “another tactlessly passionate bulletin from the heart of modern Britain, the land of zero-hours vassalage and service-economy serfdom”.

“… It’s fierce, open and angry, unironised and unadorned, about a vital contemporary issue whose implications you somehow don’t hear on the news.”

“Like their previous movie, I, Daniel Blake, it depicts the human cost of an economic development that we are encouraged to accept as a fact of life.  … I was hit in the solar plexus by this movie, wiped out by the simple honesty and integrity of the performances. …”

All quotes taken from Peter Bradshaw’s review in The Guardian – it’s worth reading the full article here.

** SORRY WE MISSED YOU ** THU 20th August ** 8 pm ** Alte Gerberei **

Block the date in your calendars – Platform 2 will be there as well and play live before the film.
