So, do you want to spend 90 minutes with Tom Hardy? Then “Locke” should fit the bill. The single setting, real time drama/thriller is nothing more than the actor in a car, talking on a telephone, and yet writer/director Steven Knight has crafted something truly special here, and gets a terrific turn out of his lead actor.
We called Hardy’s work an “impressive achievement in a very impressive film” that follows an ordinary man who’s life is falling apart around him, and it’s one we recommend you make time for this spring. “Locke” arrives on April 24th and a new poster is up above via Empire. Stay tuned on Monday for the first trailer.
