Director: Steven Knight
Cast: Tom Hardy
It happens one night, on the eve of the biggest challenge of his career. On his way home, Locke receives a phone call, one that makes him decide to do a diversion, instead of going straight to home. He makes phone calls; he receives phone calls. Lots of them. We learn what is happening through these phone conversations. And all these take place in one car ride. We see only Locke; all the other characters are just voices on the telephone.
This kind of storytelling is innovative. Tom Hardy's performance is riveting. The movie is an exciting joyride.
