The highly anticipated new film from Ken Loach, direct from Cannes and the Melbourne Film festival.

Ricky, Abby and their two children live in Newcastle and have been fighting an uphill struggle since the 2008 financial crash. Ricky has skipped from one labouring job to another while Abby, who loves her work, cares for old people. Despite working longer and harder they realise they will never have independence or their own home.

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, with his own business at last. It's hard work, and his wife's job as a carer is no easier. The family unit is strong but when the family are pulled in different directions, everything comes to breaking point.

★★★★★ It’s fierce, open and angry, un-ironised and unadorned, about a vital contemporary issue. – The Guardian

Screens without Borders preview charity screening

Screens without Borders preview charity screening

Michael Smith, owner-operator of the beautiful cinema Sun Theatre in Yarraville, Victoria started up this inspirational charity some years back.

With a love of cinema and community Michael wanted to bring movies to communities that have very little, or no access, to movies. Screens without Borders was born, and he organised for a travelling cinema in East Timor which has brought countless hours of joy to these communities. He is currently doing a trial in some of the very remotest Aboriginal communities in Australia. Screens without Borders is travelling with a ute that converts into a screen and Michael has tried to make the equipment set up as easy as possible.

We love what he is doing, as does Icon films, so we have both committed to giving 100% of proceeds for tonight’s screening to help Michael with his grand plan. Click here for trailer



As a stripped-down, minutely detailed portrait of the daily grind as back-breaking Sisyphean ordeal, "Sorry We Missed You" is engrossing and bluntly persuasive.

The film's tragedy is that no amount of love and goodwill can save us when the cards are so horribly stacked against us.
