Dubbed the post-modern Taxi Driver, You Were Never Really Here is the taut and excruciatingly tense tale of a solitary and deeply troubled underworld mercenary.
Joe, a tormented but brutal hired gun, sets out to rescue a young girl from a sex ring, only to find himself weathering a storm of gruesome conspiracy and violent retribution when matters go awry. As the violence swirls both around him and through him, Joe’s deeply damaged psyche is revealed, but will this maelstrom lead to his awakening?
Based on the book by Jonathan Ames, written and directed by Lynne Ramsay (We Need To Talk About Kevin) and starring Joaquin Phoenix (Her, Gladiator), You Were Never Really Here marks an outstanding breakout performance by Ekaterina Samsonov and yet another mesmerising, eerie score from Radiohead’s Academy Award-nominee Jonny Greenwood.
