Ken Loach calls Jeremy Corbyn only 'bright spark' on horizon

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION With the tale of a family unraveling under the pressure of their precarious jobs, Ken Loach's latest Cannes entry takes aim at the gig economy model dividing politicians and workers the world over.

Set in the northeastern English city of Newcastle, "I'm Sorry We Missed You" charts hard-working father Ricky Turner's efforts to keep his family together after he signs on as a self-employed delivery man, and tries to dig himself out of debt.

Asked on Friday (May 17) whether he saw any way to shake up the labor model decried in the film, Loach said his hopes lay with Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of Britain's opposition Labour Party, and his team - but added that they faced an uphill struggle.

"They promised to cut back the power of capital, and the attacks on them, the smears, have been extraordinary.

And they will get worse," Loach said.
