Best Actor: Cannes Film Festival
Best Screenplay: Cannes Film Festival
The always excellent Joaquin Phoenix delivers an intense, powerful performance as Joe, a traumatised veteran, haunted by his past, who tracks down missing girls for a living. But then he is called upon to rescue the daughter of a senator, and slowly everything begins to unravel.
Multi award winning director Lynne Ramsay (We Need To Talk About Kevin and Morvern Callar) returns with her critically acclaimed adaptation of Jonathan Ames’ novel, crafting a tense, brooding film that doesn’t let-up from the opening moments, You Were Never Really Here plays as a tense, psychological drama that defies genre. The film received a seven-minute standing ovation at Cannes.
“The actor and the filmmaker craft a fiercely brilliant drama that gets under your skin and makes it crawl.” – Rolling Stone
