You Were Never Really Her got a great reception at last year’s Cannes Film Festival, including seeing Joaquin Phoenix pick up Best Actor. Not bad for a movie that sounds like a more serious version of Taken.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘A missing teenage girl. A brutal and tormented enforcer on a rescue mission. Corrupt power and vengeance unleash a storm of violence that may lead to his awakening. Written and directed by Lynne Ramsay and based on the book by Jonathan Ames, You Were Never Really Here stars Joaquin Phoenix, Ekaterina Samsonov, Judith Roberts, John Doman, Alex Manette, Dante Pereira-Olsen, and Alessandro Nivola.
‘You Were Never Really Here premiered at the 70th Cannes Film Festival, where Joaquin Phoenix won the award for Best Actor and Lynne Ramsay was the joint winner for Best Screenplay. The film is scheduled to be released March 9th 2018.’
