Ivan Locke (Tom Hardy, The Dark Knight Rises) has crafted a nearly flawless life. He has worked diligently to construct the existence he has always envisioned for himself, dedicating himself to the job that he loves and the family he adores. Then, on the eve of the biggest challenge of his career, Ivan receives a phone call that sets in motion a calamitous 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 a tense and profound exploration of how one decision can lead to the complete collapse of a life. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Steven Knight (screenwriter of Eastern Promises and Dirty Pretty Things) and driven by an unforgettable performance by Tom Hardy, Locke is a jarringly intimate character study, as well as a thrillingly unique cinematic experience, detailing one man’s fight to keep his precious world from crumbling around him and salvage all that is important to him.
