I admit that the #1 reason I picked up this flick was because it starred Olivia Wilde. What I didn't know was that it also stars Kata Mara. So, I get 2(!) of my favorite actresses in the same film. On top of that, it takes place in my home state of Michigan. That's what I call the tri-fecta!!
The story centers around a brother & sister who are bank robbers (Eric Bana / Olivia Wilde). They end up on-the-run during a blizzard and they're trying to escape into Canada. Charlie Hunnam portrays a boxer who just got out of prison, only to find himself in even more hot water > an altercation with his former manager. His parents (Kris Kristofferson & Sissy Spacek) want him home for Thanksgiving dinner. And then there is a young police officer (Kata Mara) who is hoping to make her police chief father proud of her. There is a curious parallel between her character & that of the boxer as both want so BADLY to gain favor from their fathers.
If you like thrillers, then this one is certainly a worthwhile video to pick up. Eric Bana does a credible job of a conflicted criminal who is a fugitive from justice. He isn't all bad, but feels he is "pushed" into situations where he has to take drastic action. One thing is for sure: this will be one Thanksgiving that they will never forget!
