This article was written for Annabel & Grace, which is now part of Rest Less.
So we settled down in true couch potato form with a large bowl of (slightly overmicrowaved) popcorn and switched it on.
If I tell you that the entire film features Locke (Tom Hardy) driving a car, you would be forgiven for thinking that this must be up for Most Boring Film of the Year. But it is anything but. The plot unfolds as he drives along answering and making various phone calls.
Here’s the storyline:
Ivan Locke has worked diligently to craft the life he has envisioned, dedicating himself to the job that he loves and the family he adores. On the eve of the biggest challenge of his career, Ivan receives a phone call that sets in motion a series of events that will unravel his family, job, and soul. All taking place over the course of one absolutely riveting car ride, Locke is an exploration of how one decision can lead to the complete collapse of a life.
Definitely a DVD for your collection.
