Director Lynne Ramsay will attend the screening on Fri 23 Feb


Lynne Ramsay’s long-awaited new feature is a brutal, visionary adaptation of Jonathan Ames’ noir-tinged novella, with an unforgettable performance from Joaquin Phoenix. Joe is a hammer-wielding avenger on a quest for salvation, rescuing young girls who have been kidnapped into the sex trade. His latest case involves a senator’s daughter. Worthy of comparisons to Taxi Driver and Chinatown, You Were Never Really Here is a superbly crafted journey into the heart of darkness with a tremendous electronic score by Jonny Greenwood. Look out for Soundtracking with Edith Bowman: Lynne Ramsay.

A brutal, punishing watch, but every minute is a masterclass in filmmaking

Joseph Walsh, The Skinny

A stark, sinewy, slashed-to-the-bone hitman thriller far more concerned with the man than the hit
