Set in contemporary Chicago, amid a time of turmoil, four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands' criminal activities, take fate into their own hands, and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.
Circa 1969, several strangers, most with a secret to bury, meet by chance at Lake Tahoe's El Royale, a rundown hotel with a dark past. Over the course of one night, everyone will show their true colors - before everything goes to hell.
One of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time, Marie Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontline of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless.
Set in 1980s Detroit at the height of the crack epidemic and the War on Drugs, WHITE BOY RICK is based on the moving story of a blue-collar father and his teenage son, Rick Wershe Jr., who became an undercover police informant and later a drug dealer, before he was abandoned by his handlers.
Matthew McConaughey and Rory Cochrane previously starred together in Dazed and Confused (1993). See more »
When Rick and friends find the rats and open fire on them, Boo gets blood splatter on his clothes and face. In the first couple of shots, there's a large spot on his cheek; in the next, the large spot is gone and the blood is more spread out. See more »
The movie isn't bad. It isn't mouth dropping awesome but it is highly intriguing. Its a movie that starts off a little slow but the speed starts to pick up and it stays steady. Its not the most ideal story but its one that when you watch it you start to question why things happen the way they do. Why pick from the lower level families but then that's typical. The trailer tells enough of the story that you get the gist of it.
The FBI essentially picks up and recruits the kid that turns to be the youngest informant. They get what they need and then done. But then it is Detroit back then and it hasn't been painted in a nice picture. Now is it worth watching a second time? That's most likely a no unless you have nothing else to do. Its good for that first viewing but beyond that you'll be better off spending your money on something else.
