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.
„Loach does what he does best in this persuasive, affecting drama about a couple ground down by zero-hours contracts, where humour and honesty keep sentimentality at bay. As in his best work, the strong, grounded, naturalistic performances prevent the film becoming overly didactic, ensuring that it succeeds as stirring, plausible, relevant drama about the severely constrained options facing far too many in Britain today.”
