"Locke" movie quotes follow one man whose life changes irreparably during a series of phone calls while he drives. The one-man British film was written and directed by Steven Knight and first shown at the 70th Venice International Film Festival. "Locke" opened in the United States on April 25, 2014.

In "Locke," the title character of Ivan Locke (Tom Hardy) is chronicled as he drives from Birmingham to London. In a series of phone calls he takes using the bluetooth sync with his expensive sports car, viewers watch as Ivan fields both personal and professional calls, both of which are filled with stress and tense emotions.

In one call with his wife Katrina ( Ruth Wilson), Ivan explains that he's not coming home tonight. With a little prodding, Ivan admits that he got another woman, Bethan ( Olivia Colman), pregnant having cheated just once. In speaking to his sons, he is saddened to report that he won't be home to watch football with them. In calls with coworkers Donal (Andrew Scott) and Gareth (Ben Daniels), Ivan explains that he will not be supervising a very important construction job as planned the next morning and soon learns that he is fired as a result. And in conversations with his deceased father, who Ivan imagines in the back seat of the car, Ivan's pain and guilt comes to a head.

"Locke" comes highly reviewed but it will might have a struggle at the box office going up against films such as "Brick Mansions," "The Other Woman," "Transcendence," "A Haunted House 2," "Heaven is for Real," "Draft Day," "Under the Skin," "Dom Hemingway," "Joe," "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," "Sabotage," "Noah," "Blood Ties," the "Veronica Mars" movie, "Need for Speed."
