Christopher Kelly Modern Cinema - Monthly Series

  • April 17, 2014 - 7:00pm

Christopher Kelly Modern Cinema-Monthly Series presents Locke.

Tom Hardy (Inception) stars as a construction supervisor with a wife, a pregnant mistress and some very frustrated co-workers, who over the course of a late-night car ride from Birmingham to London struggles to keep his life for spiraling desperately out of control. Written and directed by Steven Knight (the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of Dirty Pretty Things and Eastern Promises), this is at once a haunting character study, a nerve-jangling thriller and an audacious technical triumph (the film never leaves the confines of the car, and Hardy is the only actor we see onscreen). Following hugely successful screenings at the Venice and Sundance Film Festivals, Locke will screen at the Modern weeks before its national release.
