This looks like Movies In Focus‘ type of jam. Matthew McConaughey was basically born to play the lead in a sweaty noir like Serenity.Throw in a cast including Anne Hathaway, Diane Lane, Jason Clarke and Djimon Hounsou and you would hope that this delivers the goods.
From the creative mind of Oscar nominee Steven Knight comes a daringly original, sexy, stylized thriller. Baker Dill (Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey) is a fishing boat captain leading tours off a tranquil, tropical enclave called Plymouth Island. His quiet life is shattered, however, when his ex-wife Karen (Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway) tracks him down with a desperate plea for help. She begs Dill to save her – and their young son – from her new, violent husband (Jason Clarke) by taking him out to sea on a fishing excursion, only to throw him to the sharks and leave him for dead. Karen’s appearance thrusts Dill back into a life he’d tried to forget, and as he struggles between right and wrong, his world is plunged into a new reality that may not be all that it seems.
Writer-Director Steven Knight’s Serenity opens on 25 January 2019
