Built as a tense, airtight thriller, this Cannes hit is a captivating take on the classic American revenge story. Dwight is a vagrant, scavenging for food and sleeping in a broken-down car. His aimless existence is interrupted, however, when he hears that a man from his past is being released from prison. Instantly, Dwight jumps into action, returning to his childhood home to protect his relatives and prepared to carry out an act of vengeance. The result is an enthralling, startling, purely cinematic tale of family and vengeance that is not to be missed.
