"We are our choices."

“It is not for me to judge another man's life. I must judge, I must choose, I must spurn, purely for myself. For myself, alone.”
― Hermann Hesse,

     Every life is a voyage. Choose your path. The highly anticipated film, Locke written by esteemed British director, Steven Knight opens in theaters worldwide on April 25th. Knight was Oscar nominated in 2003 for Dirty Pretty Things and has written a screenplay for which Hollywood royalty, Steven Spielberg will be producing soon. Knight and his daring narrative Locke have been generating buzz for its artistic use of light and reflection inside of a confined space and garnered praise for a brilliantly unique solo performance. If you're going to fully focus your attention on one actor for 85 minutes you cannot do better than the devastatingly handsome and genuinely talented English actor, Tom Hardy. Hardy plays Ivan Locke, a successful construction manager whose life drastically unravels with a series of phone calls while he drives on an unforgettable journey. With an innovative and gripping script audiences will be captivated by Tom Hardy's passionate range of emotions. Known most recently for his portrayal as the beefed up Batman nemesis,  Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, Hardy continues to elaborate on quite an impressive resume with film roles in Christopher Nolan's 2010 science-fiction heist epic, Inception, as a former US Marine and MMA fighter in Warrior and playing opposite his acting hero Gary Oldman in 2011's cold war espionage film Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

      Locke has already received critical acclaim ahead of its release in the UK and it won best screenplay at the British Independent Film Awards, with Hardy receiving a nomination for best actor. "An exceptional one-man show for Tom Hardy, this ingeniously executed study in cinematic minimalism has depth, beauty and poise," said Lesie Felperin of Variety.  Few actors can completely mesmerize an audience with their presence alone but Hardy brings the goods and has the cojones.
