Scottish writer and director Lynne Ramsay (We Need To Talk About Kevin) returns, with this brutal psychological drama featuring a masterful performance from Joaquin Phoenix.
The film follows Joe, a traumatized veteran unafraid of violence, who 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.

Every year, on and around International Women’s Day, we seek to shine an extra bright light on women in film, particularly those behind the camera.
On International Women’s Day itself – we begin our run of the fantastic new film The Kindergarten Teacher, written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Sara Colangelo. Bird’s Eye View, who champion and celebrate films created by women, will be joining us at the cinema on Thursday 14th March for a panel discussion after the film, to discuss issues of gender-equality in the film industry (see our website for more details).
This March we’re also delighted to continue The Personal is Political, a season of films by renowned feminist filmmaker Margarethe von Trotta, curated by the Independent Film Office. The first female director to win the Golden Lion at Venice Film Festival, von Trotta is to thank for some of the most trailblazing films of the past five decades, including in this programme The German Sisters (Sun. 10th March) and The Second Awakening of Christa Klages (Tue. 26th March), which both feature strong, intriguing and complex female leads.
We’re also taking the opportunity this March – the month of the Oscars – to highlight three outstanding female-directed films from last year, which were sadly overlooked by the current awards-season.
Lynn Ramsey’s You Were Never Really Here, Debra Granik’s Leave No Trace, and Chloé Zhao’s The Rider were all included in our top-5-films of 2018. So we’re thrilled to bring back these staff favourites, offering the chance to experience these fantastic films on the big screen once more:
