The advance word on this film has been exceptional since its debut at Cannes last year, where it won the FIPRESCI International Critics Prize. Director Jeremy Saulnier will be present for a Q&A and there will be a post-screening reception at Cullen's. Hope to see you there.
"The most suspenseful American film of the year: sudden, terrifying, and excitingly singular." —Gabe Toro, indieWIRE
A beach bum finds his quiet life upended by dreadful news and sets off for his childhood home to carry out an act of revenge. Blue Ruin is a classic American revenge story that recently won the FIPRESCI International Critics Prize at the Cannes Film Festival where it screened in the Directors’ Fortnight. The film follows a mysterious outsider whose quiet life is turned upside down when he returns to his childhood home to carry out an act of vengeance. Proving himself an amateur assassin, he winds up in a brutal fight to protect his estranged family.
