Contract killer Joe (Joaquin Phoenix) is known as one of the best and most brutal in the business. Fond of hammers, he carries out his unpleasant job while dealing with a severe post-traumatic stress disorder. But when a political hopeful tasks him with rescuing his teenage daughter from the brothel she was kidnapped into, he uncovers a deadly conspiracy he can’t walk away from.
YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE’s pedigree is hard to beat. Writer-director Lynne Ramsay comes to the project off the universally-acclaimed WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN, while composer Jonny Greenwood (THERE WILL BE BLOOD, PHANTOM THREAD, Radiohead) is one of the most exciting figures in the business. The film also received Best Actor and Beat Screenplay awards at the Cannes Film Festival — not to mention a seven-minute standing ovation.
Hailed as a modern successor to TAXI DRIVER, YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE is a study in atmospheric storytelling from a master filmmaker, based on a novella by acclaimed writer Jonathan Ames. Gripping, daring, and uncompromising, it’s a film you won’t soon forget. (Alamo Drafthouse)
