“The story is surprisingly engrossing and compelling, due to Tom Hardy’s great skill as an actor and the finely wrought script.” -Bruce Demara, Toronto Star
“[Hardy’s performance is] the reason you’d see Locke, and the reason you may remember it fondly, long after the ride ends.”–Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
Ivan Locke (Tom 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 and written 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.
