You Were Never Really Here

Winner of the Best Actor award for Joaquin Phoenix and the Best Screenplay award for writer/director Lynne Ramsay (Morvern Callar, We Need To Talk About Kevin) at the Cannes Film Festival, this dream duo team up to reinvent the hitman thriller with an electrifying and audacious mix of dread, tension, and zero sentimentality, accompanied by a nerve-shredding score by Jonny Greenwood.

Joe tracks down missing girls for a living. A military veteran clearly traumatised by his experiences and unsuited to other, less violent, avenues of work, Joe is an awkward, inarticulate figure – except when his favoured weapon of a hammer is in his hands. When a job recovering a kidnapped senator’s daughter from a sex trafficking ring starts to spin out of control, the nightmares that live within Joe’s head start to manifest as a conspiracy is uncovered: This may be Joe’s last stand or his awakening.
