Amid the high-profile work featuring Tom Hardy, the actor quickly shot a small film in which his is essentially the only visible face.
The movie is called Locke, and it is a one-man show described by one review as “basically just Tom Hardy driving a car while making a bunch of phone calls.” Lest you get the wrong idea, that same review from Variety goes on to call the movie an “ingeniously executed study in cinematic minimalism [with] depth, beauty and poise” and “a finely tuned showcase for Hardy’s exceptional acting skills.” So that’s alright, then.
The film premiered at the Venice Film Fest this past weekend, where it met with positive reviews such as Variety’s. Oh, and the movie comes from writer/director Steven Knight (Eastern Promises, Redemption) and executive producer Joe Wright (Hanna, Anna Karenina).
We don’t have a trailer yet, but there’s a clip you can check out to start getting an idea about the movie. Read More »
