The Press Reviews

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

  • A drama of such searing human empathy and quotidian heartbreak that its powerful climactic scenes actually impede your breathing. Full Review

  • “Sorry to Miss You” doesn’t break new ground for the filmmaker, but it radiates a timeliness that suggests an old-fashioned Ken Loach lament matters more than ever. Full Review

  • What’s different is the detail with which Loach and his collaborators examine the effects of work and society on the nuclear family. Full Review

  • Another intimate and powerful drama about what’s going on in people’s everyday lives. ... Loach stages all of this with supreme confidence and flow. Full Review
