YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE (15) – 2017 UK/Fra/USA 85 min

Tuesday 8 May 2018 at 7:30 pm

Director: Lynne Ramsay
Stars: Joaquin Phoenix, Judith Roberts, Ekaterina Samsonov

Image from the filmA military veteran with more traumatic memories than most could bear, Joe (Phoenix) works in the murky and violent world of private security. He’s good at it, and guards his identity carefully. Between jobs, he lives with his elderly mother in his childhood home. When he’s asked to discreetly rescue a politician’s missing teenage daughter, a fragile equilibrium is destroyed. This compelling and often hallucinogenic realisation of Jonathan Ames’ novel by Ramsay (We Need to Talk about Kevin) and composer Jonny Greenwood (Phantom Thread) is “bleak psychological artistry… the best kind of feel-bad movie” (Daily Telegraph).
