Michael C Hall, Sam Shepard, Don Johnson / Fiction / English

An atmospheric tale of justice and revenge.

Jim Mickle (Stake Land, We Are What We Are), continues to impress with this stylish revenge thriller set in East Texas in 1989. Michael C Hall (Dexter) stars as Richard Dane, a quiet family man drawn into a vicious cycle of violence after he shoots cat-burglar Freddy Russell. When Richard is forced into an unlikely alliance with Freddy's father Ben and their ranks are bolstered by the flamboyant Private Eye Jim Bob Luke, the most appealing vigilante trio in recent cinema history is born.
