Phoenix, Ramsay Team On “Really Here”

Joaquin Phoenix is set to star in Lynne Ramsay’s character-driven thriller “You Were Never Really Here” for BFI, Film4 and Insiders.

Phoenix will play a damaged war veteran, now a freelance rescuer of women trafficked into the sex trade.

When the extraction of a girl from a Manhattan brothel goes wrong, a storm of violence and corrupt power is unleashed against him, stirring a vengeance that may be his awakening.

Ramsay (“We Need to Talk About Kevin”) will direct from her own adaptation of a novella by Jonathan Ames.
