Synopsis

One man making and taking phone calls while driving his car is the simple and ingeniously effective premise for this original thriller. Tom Hardy puts in a brilliant performance as Ivan Locke, a successful Welsh construction site manager who has worked hard to achieve the life he has envisioned for himself. But on the eve of his – and Europe’s - largest job yet, he receives a phone call that threatens to destroy his career and family. Moving and full of suspense, the film holds us in the grip of Locke’s predicament as he tears down the English motorway in the dark, railing against the memory of his father when he’s not on a call. It shows how just one decision can alter the course of our lives forever.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
