In Locked Down, just as they decide to separate, Linda (Anne Hathaway) and Paxton (Chiwetel Ejiofor) find life has other plans when they are stuck at home in a mandatory lockdown.
Co-habitation is proving to be a challenge, but fueled by poetry and copious amounts of wine, it will bring them closer together in the most surprising way.
“Linda has been carrying around so much tension for so long,” Hathaway told People. “This film is partially about how the chaos of lockdown allows her to release that tension, let go of whatever BS was getting her through the day and how she gets all the way honest about what authenticity and freedom mean to her.”
She said Linda “is messy and a little nuts and I liked that.”
Hathaway added that the making of the movie was “very normal” in some ways and “completely wild” in others. “The sheer act of making it, of doing something so collaborative and audacious made us all very focused and open — and strangely free.”
She continued: “Like the odds were so against us anyway that it made me want to lean into the exhilaration and take risks with my performance.
“It was scary taking my mask off every day, and so I really appreciated how committed the crew was to keeping their masks on — even when we were shooting in hot rooms and they were carrying heavy camera and lighting equipment they were always, always masked.
“Their professionalism helped keep me safe, and I was and am incredibly grateful to them.”
Academy Award nominee Steven Knight wrote the screenplay for Locked Down and P.J. van Sandwijk, Alison Winter and Michael Lesslie produced.
The film premieres on HBO Max Thursday, January 14, 2021.
