Ready to stream Locked Down but not sure where and when to look for it? We’re here to help, movie lovers. As reported by IndieWire, the quarantine heist film was shot during the early part of the pandemic and was inspired by the “new normal” we now know just a little too well thanks to the ongoing need for social distance caused by COVID-19. Surprisingly, though, this film comes with a romantic twist.
What is Locked Down about?
As reported by IndieWire, Locked Down centers on “what it’s like being quarantined with a romantic partner when the relationship is uncertain.” Directed by Doug Liman, the innovative rom-com thriller stars Anne Hathaway and Chiwetel Ejiofor, who are supported by an equally talented cast.
Without a doubt, this theme for the Bourne Identity director’s 2021 film is timely. On top of that, the characters also seem to be delightfully human, even while orchestrating a high-stakes jewelry heist. Noted by The Hollywood Reporter, the film focuses on a “sparring couple” attempting a “high-risk, high-stakes jewelry heist at the world’s most exclusive department store, Harrods” during COVID-19. And while desperate times call for desperate measures is definitely a theme throughout, so is love.
The official synopsis for this new quarantine-shot film reads:
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.
But of course, the question right now remains: When and where can we stream Locked Down?
