Locke [2013]: Quick Review

Cast: Tom Hardy, Olivia Colman, Ruth Wilson, Andrew Scott.

Directed by: Steven Knight

Locke is the story of Ivan Locke's 2 hour journey as he drives to London as the woman he "once" slept with is going to deliver a baby. He had a plan to watch the football game with his wife and kids. He also had a historical project at work, the very next morning. But he decides his priorities and plans to be with this "other" woman in London. Not caring about the consequences, he believes that doing the right thing is more important in life.

Here are some important life lessons, we can learn from Ivan Locke:

  • You decide something, you stick to the plan
  • You finish what you start. No matter what, you don't run away from your responsibility.
  • Your responsibility is sometimes beyond money or any profit.
  • You only say the truth.
  • You need to be calm, composed and positive.
  • There will always be something to look forward and something to upset you, but you can't get carried away either way.

Ivan being a construction director shows at all times his constructive ways to handle life's problems. This is an essential film, every person going through any kind of crisis (or not) must watch.
