Acclaimed director/writer Steven Knight's (EASTERN PROMISES, DIRTY PRETTY THINGS) LOCKE makes it's Hawaii debut.

Ivan Locke has crafted a nearly flawless life. Professionally, he is an obsessive perfectionist, respected by his coworkers and loved by his bosses. He cherishes the bond he shares with his two sons and the unshakeable partnership he has developed with his wife. This is the life he always imagined, an ideal existence built with painstaking care.

Hours before the biggest day of his career, Locke receives a phone call that threatens to destroy the life he has worked so meticulously to create. As he struggles to keep his world intact, he is forced to confront his imperfections and the fractured foundation where they are rooted.

Drawing the audience into a jarringly intimate character study, Steven Knight’s superbly confident direction shapes a bold and unusual cinematic experience. As the sole actor onscreen, Tom Hardy delivers an astonishing performance, filling every frame with his unmistakable charisma. LOCKE is a stunning portrait of a man struggling to keep his precious world from crumbling.
