Joaquin Phoenix unleashes hell in You Were Never Really Here trailer

First, let's say how absolutely glad we are to have Lynne Ramsay back.

Ramsay wrote and directed the film based on the book by Jonathan Ames.

Starring Joaquin Phoenix, the Jonny Greenwood-scored thriller follows him as a veteran who takes it upon himself to help young victims of sex trafficking in New York City.

Based on the Jonathan Ames novella of the same name, You Were Never Really Here follows Joe (Phoenix), a PTSD-addled veteran of the Gulf War and a former Federal Bureau of Investigation agent who now works as a hitman and is hired by a senator to rescue his daughter from a child sex ring.

This looks fantastic, and I'm angry we have to wait until April of 2018 to see it. "[Director Ramsay's] return seals her standing as one of our most fearless and forceful filmmakers, if not one as prolific as she deserves to be", said the LA Times.

You Were Never Really Here will be released in select theaters by Amazon Studios on April 6, 2018.

What does the official synopsis say, though?

Phoenix plays Joe, a traumatized war veteran who now makes a living tracking down missing girls.

The film also stars Judith Roberts, John Doman, Alex Manette, Dante Pereira-Olsen, and Alessandro Nivola. When a job spins out of control, Joe's nightmares overtake him as a conspiracy is uncovered leading to what may be his death trip or his awakening.
