Storyline

A noirish crime thriller, Galveston centers on New Orleans hitman Roy Cady, diagnosed with lung cancer at 40. Before the cancer can do him in, however, he has more pressing concerns in the form of his mobster boss, who has decided to remove him from the business - and the world - via a set-up. Turning the tables, he goes on the run having rescued teenage hooker Raquel "Rocky" Arceneaux. He's persuaded to pick up her baby sister Tiffany, and with his new wards in tow, heads to his titular hometown to scheme revenge and redemption. Written by Polly_Kat

Poignant and powerful movie
10 October 2018 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

It's a true film noir, crime film, that I am talking now. A road movie too, pulled by a French film director, female film director, whose I will comment another movie: DIVING. That will be tomorrow, Watch out on Imdb. This one of a very sensitive and moving love story, but not as you may expect. A depressing and not very hopeful film. A former gangster is on the run in Texas and meets a young girl who runs also away with her little sister. Melanie Laurent gives here a true lesson of dramatization in this feature inspired by a novel.
