Watching Tom Hardy in Steven Knight‘s Locke, you realize just how wonderful of an actor he is. The film is about a guy named Ivan Locke (Hardy) who’s dedicated himself to his job and family. But, on the night of a huge business deal, he gets a phone call that changes everything. The film takes place in the course of one car ride and it’s just Hardy. It’s just him, talking on the phone and driving. And it’s just great. How many actors can hold your attention for an hour and a half while driving and talking on the phone? Not many.
The SAG Foundation recently brought Hardy and Knight in for one of their Conversation series to talk about Locke and a whole lot more.
