Before its theatrical release from Amazon Studios, inspired artists will get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to illustrate the You Were Never Really Here poster and be part of the film’s official art exhibit in Los Angeles. Based on the book by Jonathan Ames, Joaquin Phoenix stars in the highly anticipated crime thriller from director Lynn Ramsay.

A traumatized veteran, unafraid of violence, tracks down missing girls for a living. When a job spins out of control, Joe (Phoenix)’s nightmares overtake him as a conspiracy is suddenly uncovered. His shocking discovery will lead to what very may well be his death trip or his awakening. The cast includes Judith Roberts, Ekaterina Samsonov, John Doman, Alex Manette, Dante Pereira-Olsen, and Alessandro Nivola

Here are 5 reasons why we’re excited for the You Were Never Really Here illustration contest:

5) The Art Exhibit!

The Taschen Gallery will serve as host to an interactive display of art from Lynne Ramsay’s feature film. The set design vignettes will allow attendees to enter the Joe’s dark world.
