Tom Hardy Cleans Up Well At The Venice Film Festival, Earns Rave Reviews For ‘Locke’
Tom looked pretty scruffy in a t-shirt and jeans when he attended the photocall for his film Locke. However, when it came to the premiere for the film, Tom cleaned up quite splendidly.
The actor is said to have wowed audiences during the screening of Locke at the Venice International Film Festival, which was shown out of competition. Watch a clip below.
Hardy plays Ivan Locke, a construction foreman and concrete expert who leaves his job on the eve of a massive project. When the movie starts, it’s near dusk and he’s settling into a drive in a shiny BMW SUV. After calls to a colleague, his boss, a woman called Bethan, and his wife and sons, the audience starts to understand where he’s headed and why.
Ryan Reynolds’ 2010 film Buried.
“Locke is basically just Tom Hardy driving a car while making a bunch of phone calls, and yet this ingenuously executed study in cinematic minimalism has depth, beauty and poise,” writes Variety’s Leslie Felperin, adding it was a “finely tuned showcase” for Hardy’s “exceptional acting skills.”
Congrats to Tom Hardy for this. I knew he had this in him!
