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.
Locked Down also stars Stephen Merchant, Mindy Kaling, Lucy Boynton, Dulé Hill, Jazmyn Simon, Ben Stiller and Ben Kingsley.
The script was written by Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight.
The film was shot in London during the global pandemic. HBO Max acquired worldwide rights to the picture in December. It is set to start streaming exclusively on January 14.
