Locke

15 yrs 81 minutes 2013 7.1

The foundation of Ivan Locke’s life is as stable as the gigantic skyscraper he spends his days planning the construction for. He has a well-paid day job and is loved by his wife and two children. But one night when leaving work, he turns his car around and instead of driving home, he decides to drive to London. We follow Locke on his two-hour drive to London in real time and through the phone calls he receives the question of what’s going on starts to unravel. Locke is determined not to make the same mistake as his father, and therefore risks losing his comfortable life and all he has worked so hard for. The reason for his decision is at a London hospital. “Locke acts effectively within the self-chosen, very narrow constraints and offers a pleasing imaginative complexity based on important factors: intelligent text and seamless acting.” Jan Söderqvist writes in Svenska Dagbladet. Mats Johnson rewards Locke with the highest rating since the it “comes to life thanks to the phenomenal acting by Hardy and the equally phenomenal night- and highway pictures by Haris Zambarloukos”.
