Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Locke is a tense, sleek, and deeply engrossing thriller that revolves around a construction manager (Tom Hardy) on the verge of professional and relationship suicide. There's no nudity or violence (except for a man hitting the steering wheel while driving) and virtually no drinking or drugs, save for a verbal reference. But there's plenty of strong swearing (including "f--k," "s--t," "c--t," and more), and the material is intense -- particularly a wrenching admission of infidelity and two boys' reaction to the discovery that all may not be well with their parents' marriage.
A man discusses his infidelity.
Some yelling during phone calls. While driving, a man hits the steering wheel out of frustration.
Frequent strong swearing, including "f--k," "bastard," "arse," "s--t," "hell," "Jesus," one use of "c--t," and lots of British slang.
You can't overstate the importance of righting a wrong, even if it means going to great lengths and undergoing great pain.
The BMW logo is quite visible throughout the film.
Drugs / Tobacco /
One character talks (on the phone) about having beers while working.
