“In the end, there’s no question that what you’re watching is a masterfully-made movie.” Entertainment Weekly
Two of the greatest cinema artists of our time, director Lynne Ramsay (We Need to Talk About Kevin) and actor Joaquin Phoenix unite in this masterpiece about a missing teenage girl, a brutal and tormented enforcer on a rescue mission, and the corrupt power and vengeance unleashed, which may lead to his awakening.
Phoenix plays Joe, a traumatized veteran, unafraid of violence, who tracks down missing girls for a living. When a job to rescue the New York City Senator’s daughter spins out of control, Joe’s nightmares overtake him as a conspiracy is uncovered leading to what may be his death trip or his awakening.
“Joaquin Phoenix is simply stupendous in a revenge thriller from the brilliant Scottish filmmaker Lynne Ramsay that gets under your skin and makes it crawl. You won’t know what hit you.” Rolling Stone
