Dir: Lynne Ramsay, UK/France/US, 90 min. Joaquin Phoenix, Ekaterina Samsonov, Alessandro Nivola. Cannes Festival Winner, Best Actor, Best Screenplay

“A journey to the deepest levels of the dark side, You Were Never Really Here is an art-house crime thriller that succeeds on every technical and creative level. From its soul-searing cinematography to its breathtaking use of music through the haunted, watchful, aching lead performance, it bursts at the seams with 90 minutes of genius moments.”—Colin Cover, The Star Tribune. “Hailed at Cannes last year—where it won prizes for best actor and best screenplay—Lynne Ramsay’s You Were Never Really Here is, on one level, a conventional pulp thriller about a finder of lost children whose latest job goes sideways, leading to a bloody, brutal reckoning… Ramsay has taken Jonathan Ames’s novella and applied her own distinctive touch. The story of violence coming home to roost is also an artful study of a man desperately seeking an end to his own torment, featuring one of Joaquin Phoenix’s finest performances… More often than not, the worst things happen just off-screen… But though we only glimpse his destructive prowess, Phoenix wears every bit of it, expressing the weight of a life of violence in his weary eyes and hulking frame. In his relationships with his mother and his latest charge, a girl named Nina we see the tenderness and humanity he’s so desperate to snuff out. It’s masterful work from one of the best actors of his generation.”—Norman Wilner, Now Magazine
