Sorry We Missed You (2019, dir. Ken Loach)

A man takes on a self-employed parcel delivery job; the stresses of the work threaten to destroy his family. Excellent social realist drama with black comic touches, similar to, but less dogmatic (and thus better) than the same team’s I, Daniel Blake. Has a semi-improvised feel, and lots to say about the gig economy. Recommended.
