This Friday, May 23rd, we’ll be opening the critically acclaimed flick Locke, starring Tom Hardy. Written and directed by Steven Knight (best known as the screenwriter of Dirty Pretty Things and Eastern Promises), Locke is a one man drama/thriller (literally – Tom Hardy is the only actor to appear on screen) that has been described as “riveting”, “extraordinary”, and “brilliant”. Check out the full synopsis below, courtesy of the films distributor, A24.

“Ivan Locke (Hardy) has worked diligently to craft the life he has envisioned, dedicating himself to the job that he loves and the family he adores. On the eve of the biggest challenge of his career, Ivan receives a phone call that sets in motion a series of events that will unravel his family, job, and soul. All taking place over the course of one absolutely riveting car ride, LOCKE is an exploration of how one decision can lead to the complete collapse of a life. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Steven Knight (EASTERN PROMISES, DIRTY PRETTY THINGS) and driven by an unforgettable performance by Tom Hardy, LOCKE is a thrillingly unique cinematic experience of a man fighting to salvage all that is important to him.”(C) a24
