“In their domestic gut-punch of a story, they’ve exposed our new feudalism in a way that feels honest and blisteringly human.” Los Angeles Time
Ricky and his family have been fighting an uphill struggle against debt since the 2008 financial crash. An opportunity to wrestle back some independence appears with a shiny new van and the chance to run a franchise as a self-employed delivery driver. It’s hard work, and his wife’s job as a carer is no easier. The family unit is strong but when both are pulled in different directions everything comes to breaking point.
“What makes it one of Loach’s best isn’t just its rage (which is plentiful) but its compassion (which is overwhelming).” – New York Magazine
