Locke, an emotionally gripping movie starring Tom Hardy, is to be shown at Louth Film Club, on Monday, August 10.

The film is directed by Stephen Knight and it is a simply crafted film which paints a complex portrait of family life and ambition.

Hardy gives a powerful performance as Ivan Locke, driving through the night to be present at the birth of his child.

This is the result of a one-night stand.

Trying to keep his life intact, he makes a series of calls to his wife, son and work colleagues.

Paul Hill, chair of Louth Film Club, commented: “It’s a film that can both keep you on the edge of your seat and have you in tears of sympathy.”

According to David Jenkins of www.littlewhitelies.co.uk, Hardy’s performance is both ‘stunning’ and ‘casually restrained’.

The film will be shown the Playhouse Cinema in Cannon Street, Louth.

Membership of the club costs £10 with £4 for each film (£6.50 for non-members; £5.20 for concessions).
