Here’s the UK trailer for independent American revenge thriller, Blue Ruin. The film follows Dwight (Macon Blair), who returns to his hometown in order to carry out revenge, but to what end? The trailer is a beautifully paced attention grabber, focusing more on the calm voice of a local police officer and merely hinting at the violence to come. This truly seems to be the calm before the storm, and as some of the quotes suggest, this has been a very well received little thriller.
