"Do you have kids, Joe?" Studiocanal has debuted a new official UK trailer for Lynne Ramsay’s You Were Never Really Here, her powerful new film starring Joaquin Phoenix that premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year. We posted the official US trailer back in December, but if you still aren’t sold on it, then check this one out + the new UK poster below. Phoenix stars as Joe, a "brutal and tormented enforcer" who is assigned the job of finding and bringing home a missing girl that has been scooped up by a sex trade ring. Also starring Ekaterina Samsonov, John Doman, Judith Roberts, Alex Manette, and Alessandro Nivola. This film made my Top 10 of 2017 and I’ve been raving about it ever since seeing it in Cannes last year (read my review). This film will finally hit theaters this spring for those who’ve been patiently to see it.
