The British working class is once again the empathetic subject of Ken Loach’s wrenching, intimate family drama that exposes the dark side of the so-called “gig economy”, creepily zeroing in on a Covid-19 era growth industry.

Ricky, a former laborer, and his home-attendant wife Abby—who lost their home in the 2008 financial crash—are desperate to get out of their financial distress. When an opportunity comes up for Ricky to work as his own boss as a delivery driver, they sell their only asset, Abby’s car, to trade it in for a shiny new white van and the dream that Ricky can work his way up to someday owning his own delivery franchise.

But the couple find their lives are quickly pushed further to the edge by an unrelenting work schedule, a ruthless supervisor and the needs of their two teenage children. Capturing the sacred moments that make a family as well as the acts of desperation they need to undertake to make it through each day, this universal story is skillfully and indelibly told with unforgettable performances and a searing script by Loach’s long-time collaborator Paul Laverty.

Directed by Ken Loach. Screenplay by Paul Laverty. With Kris Hitchen, Debbie Honeywood, Rhys Stone, Katie Proctor & Ross Brewster. UK. In heavily accented English with English subtitles (thank you Ken! 2019. 100 mins.
