Conclusion: 3/5
Based on a novel by Patrick DeWitt. This is a rather strange little film. I did enjoy it but I have to say at how shocked I am that a film like this can cost an estimate of $38,000,000 to make. The Cumulative Worldwide Gross for this film is estimated to be around $13,143,056. Jacques Audiard also directed Rust and Bone (2012) which I really enjoyed. Despite the film’s American setting all the scenes were filmed in Romania, France and Spain. Just some of the themes that stand out in this film are goodness, greed and loyalty. Strong performances from the three lead actors and some good location filming.
