You Were Never Really Here movie poster

Winner of Best Actor and Screenplay at Cannes 2017.

Joe is an enigmatic presence, whose mind flickers with snapshots of a horrific childhood and his traumatic military experiences. A hired gun for a private detective, Joe specialises in rescuing missing girls from sex traffickers, with his latest assignment quickly spiralling out of control.

A brilliant score by Radiohead’s Johnny Greenwood adds the finishing touch to a devastating film about the after-effects of physical and emotional violence.
