Showtimes and location

Film description

Voted our 2nd favourite film of 2018 by staff and volunteers, You Were Never Really Here stunned audiences last year, reminding us what a remarkable filmmaker writer and director Lynne Ramsay (We Need To Talk About Kevin) is.

Combining a masterful performance from Joaquin Phoenix, with an intense score from Jonny Greenwood, this brutal psychological drama follows Joe, a traumatized veteran unafraid of violence, who tracks down missing girls for a living. When a job spins out of control, Joe's nightmares overtake him as a conspiracy is uncovered leading to what may be his death trip or his awakening.

This is a film made to be seen and experienced on the big screen, as loud as possible, and we're delighted to bring back this March, as we celebrate outstanding films from women which have sadly been overlooked during the current awards season.

Showing as part of International Women

Throughout March, to coincide with International Women's Day (8th March) we are shining an extra bright light on fantastic female filmmakers, from across the globe.
