Storyline

A modern fable set against the rugged backdrop of a Pacific Northwest logging community, this is the story of Lillian, a young woman newly returned to her hometown who becomes the subject of harassment by a man named Blackway, an ex-cop turned violent crimelord who operates with impunity in this small community on the edge of the wilderness. Forsaken by the local townspeople, advised by the Sheriff to leave town, Lillian decides instead to take a stand against her sociopathic stalker, and enlists the help of an ex-logger Lester and his laconic young sidekick Nate-the only two men in town brave enough, or crazy enough, to go with her, and go up against Blackway.

Quotes

Lester: Cancer, car wreck, drugs, dope. Suicide. Relatives. You name it, it's all... it's always going to be something. It's all in the game... Yeah. None of us gets out of this life without some bad stuff comes looking for us. Keep our heads down, hope it passes us by. Or we can, you know, just do what we're doing now.
Lillian: What's that?
Lester: We're gonna meet the son of a bitch, aren't we? Head to head, face to face.

Gritty, low-key small town drama
13 June 2016 | by nyrnSee all my reviews

If you, just like me, can't get enough of bleak and gritty small-town dramas, this one might be for you. Blackway slowly builds momentum and although not as good as Blue Ruin (2013) - one of my favorite films in the genre - actually feels kind of similar in 'realness' and setup. Dialogue is quite sparse but complements the low-key grading of the scenes perfectly. I doubt this film will make any significant waves with the general public, but Anthony Hopkins performance is as solid as ever and the story is pretty believable. Over all good performances by the cast. I would recommend for anybody into drama and or revenge type films.
