'Locke' Hamlet on the Highway Featurette

The producers of Steven Knight's drama explain that Tom Hardy prepared for their movie like he was about to star in a play. Hardy stars as a family man who has his world turned upside down after receiving a mysterious phone call on the eve of the biggest challenge of his career.

"We didn't got to any other actors, we only asked Tom," says Knight. "It is only Tom onscreen; everything stood and fell on Tom's abilities. He's pulled it off with the best performance of his career."
