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

Goofs

When Roy and Rocky approach a T-Junction the sign says that Galveston is 35 miles away and Beaumont is 39 miles away. In reality Galveston is over 100 miles away from Beaumont rendering the distances between the two places shown on the sign to be completely inaccurate. See more »

Surprisingly good!
7 January 2019 | by kmerelSee all my reviews

Ben Foster and Elle Fanning surprisingly had great chemistry together for such an odd relationship. The filming captured the time period with the exception of a cell phone in a back pocket. It had some interesting twists that kept your attention.
