2019 Cannes Critics’ Panel: Day 4 – Ken Loach’s Sorry We Missed You

2019 Cannes Critics’ Panel: Day 4 – Ken Loach’s Sorry We Missed You

His fourteenth trip in the comp and with two Palme d’Or wins under his belt (for 2006’s The Wind That Shakes the Barley and 2016’s I, Daniel Blake), Ken Loach’s Sorry We Missed You might be calling it quits after this family affair. Once again working with cinematographer Robbie Ryan, this is about picking up the pieces after the 2008 financial crash and literally picking up pieces by delivery truck with a cast comprised of Kris Hitchen, Debbie Honeywood, Rhys Stone and Katie Proctor. Wild Bunch are handling world sales.

Something tells me that Ken Loach might be packing a suitcase with his third Palme with another timely, sentimental film as certain critics are pushing this to the top of their lists. It’s still early, so far so good for the filmmaker goodbye film. Twelve of our critics weighed in so far and with got an average of 3 out of 5 stars.
