Joaquin Phoenix is on a Mission to Brutally Hurt People in This New Trailer For YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE
A gripping new trailer was just released for Joaquin Phoenix's new film You Were Never Really Here and it looks so freakin' good! Phoenix plays a tormented war veteran in the film with a troubled past who is hired to rescue a missing young girl who was sold into sex trafficking. Things don't play out the way he expected and this sends him on a brutal journey into a dark underworld where he is going to bring the pain with a hammer.
This seems like an awesome role for Phoenix to take on as it's probably his most hardcore role in a movie to date. It looks like he gives an extremely intense performance. Here's a brief synopsis that came with the trailer:
A traumatized veteran, unafraid of violence, tracks down missing girls for a living. When a job spins out of control, Joe’s nightmares overtake him as a conspiracy is uncovered leading to what may be his death trip or his awakening.
The movie was directed by Lynne Ramsay and it looks like she did a fantastic job directing the film. Child sex-trafficking in the U.S. is a huge issue. It has been for years and it good to see a film like this bring awareness to that. You Were Never Really Here opens on April 6, 2018.
