You Were Never Really Here + Interview with Lynne Ramsay | The Curzon Film Podcast

Over the course of four films, Lynne Ramsay has certified herself as a unique filmmaker with a consistent and complete vision. She is truly an auteur, and one who we were lucky enough to welcome on to the podcast to talk about her new film You Were Never Really Here.

A senator's daughter has been kidnapped. The authorities can do nothing. So ex-soldier Joe (Joaquin Phoenix), who has a reputation for resolving impossible situations, is contracted to return the girl safely home. However, things don't quite go to plan in this stripped-down psychological thriller by Lynne Ramsay (We Need to Talk About Kevin). Phoenix has rarely been better as the traumatised vet and the film is a masterclass in suspense.

Discussing the film are Kelly Powell, Sam Howlett and making his first appearance, writer for Little White Lies and creator of One Room With a View, Kambole Campbell.
