You Were Never Really Here

Drama Mystery


 

A war veteran turned hitman is hired to rescue the abducted daughter of a New York senator.

In "You Were Never Really Here", post-traumatic stress manifests in squalls of violence. A deep inner conflict resides in the main character, and his intensity is visible in every moment. Brutal altercations are juxtaposed against exquisite camerawork and imagery, presenting an oddly unique and captivating experience. Hindered only by a passive pace, this unflinching portrayal of the stark subject lingers long after. Reluctant anti-hero.
