Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Jon Bernthal, Lake Bell
Director/screenwriter Ric Roman Waugh’s (Snitch) gritty, heartrending crime thriller stars Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jacob Harlon, a successful LA financier married to Kate (Lake Bell).
This lovely young couple seem to have the perfect family, but their life is entirely disrupted after a drunk-driving accident sees Jacob charged and put in prison. Surrounded by cutthroat criminals, he’s forced to do the unimaginable to survive within the prison’s hierarchical prison society; including adopting a ruthless new persona and becoming part of a white supremacist gang.
Upon his release, he hits the treacherous streets of Los Angeles as a changed man, chased by law enforcement but still the pawn of gang leaders; for whom he must arrange an illegal deal to keep his family safe from vengeance.
A captivating and muscular psychological portrait of a man forced to completely reinvent himself to survive, with a superb central performance by Coster-Waldau.
