Lynne Ramsey at Filmekimi!

Winning two awards at Cannes, “You Were Never Really Here” will be screened at Filmekimi.

“You Were Never Really Here” is a follow-up to Lynne Ramsey’s 2011 film “We Need To Talk About Kevin”. Adapted to screen from Jonathan Ames’ story, the film’s soundtrack music was composed by Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood. A masterful direction, inventive editing which defies conventions, and brooding atmosphere brought the film the Best Screenplay Award at Cannes where it premiered, and the Best Actor Award to its lead Joaquin Phoenix, who embodies an anti-hero as memorable as “Taxi Driver”s Travis. Phoenix plays a relentless gunman who does not refrain to resort to violence as he tries to save a young girl from sex traffickers.
