More about Cane River

This film is available to stream via Kanopy with a Columbus Metropolitan or Ohio State Library card. But if you're able, we hope you'll purchase a screening ticket here to support the center's programming.

Held over: Sorry We Missed You

"Well-researched and highly detailed in how it lays bare the empty promises of the gig economy and the ruthless techno-feudalism of e-commerce, Sorry We Missed You is a movie that will infuriate you. But what makes it one of [Ken] Loach’s best isn’t just its rage (which is plentiful) but its compassion (which is overwhelming)."—Vulture
