Storyline

Baker Dill (Matthew McConaughey) is a fishing boat captain leading tours off a tranquil, tropical enclave called Plymouth Island. His quiet life is shattered, however, when his ex-wife Karen (Anne Hathaway) tracks him down with a desperate plea for help. She begs Dill to save her - and their young son - from her new, violent husband (Jason Clarke) by taking him out to sea on a fishing excursion, only to throw him to the sharks and leave him for dead. Karen's appearance thrusts Dill back into a life he'd tried to forget, and as he struggles between right and wrong, his world is plunged into a new reality that may not be all that it seems.

It cud have been a good ol skool 90s thriller. Well acted, well shot n a bit surrealistic but inept script n ending.
20 February 2019 | by Fella_shibbySee all my reviews

The trailer is so enticing, the star cast is solid, McConaughey, Hathaway, Diane Lane, Djimon Hounsou and Jason Clarke but the script is inept. Original? Nope.

Fisherman Dill (McConaughey) is leading a peaceful life on an island, he makes money catching fishes n takin tourists on his boat, he is obsessed with catching a particular tuna n when he runs outta money, he bangs Constance (Diane Lane). Sometimes he goes cliff diving all naked n suffers from strange visions n telepathic connection with his son. Drill's ex-wife Karen (Hathaway) shows up to his residence and tasks him with killing Frank, her abusive husband. The film starts like a 90s neo-noir thriller, holds up the attention with some suspense n tension but goes downhill n turns into a blunder with the lousy twist. McConaughey did a terrific job, Clarke, Lane n Djimon Hounsou all did good but they were not able to rescue the predictable n bad script. Some scenes were really good in capturing the island locations.



Mild spoilers : It has shades of Shutter Island, Jacob's Ladder, 90s neo-noir erotic thrillers n Identity.
