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. …”

Block the date in your calendars – Platform 2 will be there as well and play live before the film.
Cate Blanchett stars as Bernadette Fox, a once-legendary architect who hasn’t built anything in decades, in Where’d You Go, Bernadette.
Checking the reviews on our next film WHERE’D YOU GO, BERNADETTE, it turns out to get quite a few different scores; most professional critics mostly don’t like it, on the other hand the audience scores are good. One example is Rotten Tomatoes.
It’s probably best to check out the trailer by yourself and get your own impression – the way we see it, the film is thoughtful, funny, quirky and full of inspiration = worth watching.
See you next week!

Our July film is WHERE’D YOU GO, BERNADETTE; the story of Bernadette, an “architect on the verge of a nervous breakdown”.
