You Were Never Really Here

by Lynne Ramsay Gala Premieres

Continually haunted by his trauma, Joe has made several attempts to wipe himself off the face of the earth. The Gulf War veteran and former FBI agent finds distraction from his innermost battles by eking out a living as a contract killer. His latest client is the ambitious senator Votto, who wants him to rescue his kidnapped daughter, Nina, from the clutches of a paedophile ring. Joe sets to work like a madman with a hammer, but soon realises he is whacking a wasps’ nest, not just putting his own life on the line… With a hypnotic soundtrack underscoring the storyline, director Lynne Ramsay’s atmospheric, gently simmering genre negation takes the viewer on a journey into a dark and dangerous world. TAXI DRIVER has arrived in the 21st century.
