Why isn’t anybody talking about this? This week at Cannes, director Lynne Ramsay (We Need to Talk About Kevin) is screening a new film in competition for the Palme d’Or starring my boi Joaquin Phoenix with a majestic beard in the form of You Were Never Really Here.
Based on Jonathan Ames’ novella of the same name, You Were Never Really Here is a revenge flick about a military vet who rescues young girls from sex trafficking in New York and punishes their traffickers (and johns, I presume) until he runs into complications. You can check out this 1:31 teaser clip to learn more, but it’s pretty tight-lipped on information. In other news, it’s being scored by Johnny Greenwood of Radiohead. I don’t need much more than that to know I’ll be in line for this one.
