YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE
2017, Amazon Studios, 89 min, UK/France/USA, Dir: Lynne Ramsay

Based on the noir novella by Jonathan Ames, this thriller hurtles viewers headlong into the psychological breakdown of a troubled mercenary named Joe (Cannes Best Actor winner Joaquin Phoenix), a former U.S. soldier turned FBI agent, who now devotes his considerable capacity for violence to the rescue of kidnapped young women. When his latest assignment to retrieve a senator’s daughter (Ekaterina Samsonov) goes brutally wrong, Joe’s tightly controlled world spirals into chaos, and he is forced to confront his inability to save anyone - least of all himself. “No shot or cut here is idle or extraneous. … In a Lynne Ramsay film, even the off-key elements are perfectly chosen; an exquisite, anxious study in damage, YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE knows exactly the value of its scars.” - Guy Lodge, Variety.


Screening format: DCP. | Special Ticket Prices: $15 General, $13 Cinematheque Members. No vouchers.
