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.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Locked Down combines a heist caper, a relationship drama, and pandemic-era timeliness to produce a film that's frustratingly less than the sum of its parts.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Locked Down is a British drama, set in the midst of the global pandemic, starring Anne Hathaway and Chiwetel Ejiofor, with plenty of swearing, drinking, and drug references. Lead characters, Linda (Hathaway) and Paxton (Ejiofor) plan to undertake a major robbery, believing it to be for the right reasons. Paxton has a criminal record, and admits to having attacked someone in the past. He also speeds for the thrill of it, uses a fake ID, and steals. In one scene, drug dealers break into someone's garden, and entice the property owner to smoke an opiate. The same character admits to having taken heroin in the past, and smoking pot. The characters smoke cigarettes throughout, and they celebrate the reasons why, discussing the benefits. They also drink alone and during office hours, and we see one character get drunk by herself. The swearing is frequent, with several uses of the word "f--k" and "s--t." A character also mentions someone he knows who believes in a conspiracy that plays into Jewish stereotypes. A couple allude to having sex, but it takes place off camera. The main theme of the movie is how COVID-19 has impacted society emotionally, and how it should help us realize what's really important in our lives.
