Story


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.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..it redefines economical filmmaking, but surprisingly, turns out to be more gripping than most action dramas..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..a masterclass in how the most local and hemmed-in stories can reverberate with the power of big, universal themes..”
by Dave Calhoun [Time Out London]
“..even with nothing to cut away to and no flashbacks to offer context, the film manages to stay as tight as a vise..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]
