Dwayne McClaren has been looking for a way out of his small town upbringing of CUT BANK, MT since he graduated high school several years earlier. When he finds himself in the wrong place at the right time, he jumps at a chance to pursue a better life in a bigger city with his girlfriend Cassandra. But luck doesn't exist in Cut Bank, and this perceived good fortune is quickly followed by a flood of bad karma.Written by
The Cut Bank Penguin, (located at 1130 E. Main St., Cut Bank, MT, 48°37'47"N 112°19'01"W) which welcomes travelers to "CUT BANK MT. COLDEST SPOT IN THE NATION", was not relocated to the filming location, Innisfree, Alberta, Canada. Rather, a faithful replica was built for the production. It still stands, at the junction of 53rd Street and Railway Ave. South (53°22'58"N 111°31'50"W). Since filming was concluded, the Innisfree replica has been repainted, now reading, "WELCOME TO INNISFREE HOME OF THE CUT BANK PENGUIN". See more »

Mrs. Margaret! Look at that pretty brooch.

I thought this reminded me a bit of Fargo but my more observant companion correctly and more accurately though it was a bit of a tribute to Blood Simple. If the movie had a weakness it was that Liam Hemsworth seemed a bit flat or lost compared to the others. The story was good, few puzzles still remain unexplained regarding the background of Derby Milton, the character whose singular unravels the plans of the main character and unleashes chaos. The women all play peripheral roles and more or less stand around and look worried.
The story felt fresh and although there was a resolution of sorts it was not too cliché.
