If you’ve been wondering what Joaquin Phoenix has been up to, he’s got a new movie coming out called You Were Never Really Here. The film is a thriller that follows a tormented war veteran with a troubled past who takes it upon himself to rescue a missing teenage girl who was sold into sex trafficking. Along the way, something goes wrong and a vengeance is awakened in him.
This looks like it could be a seriously pretty brutal movie! I love what I’m seeing in this trailer and there’s no doubt it’s going to be a great film. It’s also great to see Phoenix in such a hardcore role like this. It seems like he gives an insanely intense performance. Here’s a brief synopsis that came with the trailer:
A missing teenage girl. A brutal and tormented enforcer on a rescue mission. Corrupt power and vengeance unleash a storm of violence that may lead to his awakening.
The movie was directed by Lynne Ramsay and it looks like she made one hell of a crazy movie! There’s no release date for the movie yet, but it will be released by Amazon Studios. Watch the trailer!
