Ivan Locke has worked hard to craft a good life for himself but tonight that life will collapse around him. On the eve of the biggest challenge of his career, Ivan receives a phone call that sets in motion a series of events that will unravel his family, job, and soul.


It was a joy and challenge to make LOCKE in an entirely different way. Shot in real time, LOCKE breaks new ground in movie-making with Hardy holding the screen alone while the camera never blinks. The night time highway is part backdrop, part art installation, as a stellar cast play the people Ivan loves and hates and who witness his extraordinary journey to despair and ultimately to redemption. A man’s life transformed in a half a tank of gas. I believe the journey of Ivan Locke is deeply moving and utterly compulsive.
