Deadfall

Really enjoyed Deadfall. Simple enough story line, but some excellent characters. Well acted, no unnecessary padding, and some nice bits of humour and one very easily missed word in a telephone conversation that makes a huge difference!

Eric Bana and Olivia Wilde star in this crime thriller about two siblings who go on the run after a botched heist. After robbing a casino in Mount Pleasant, Michigan, Addison (Bana) and his younger sister Liza (Wilde) are speeding towards the Canadian border when their car crashes in the icy weather. As they attempt to escape from the scene, a passing policeman approaches them and Addison shoots him. Dividing the loot between them, the siblings split up and plan to meet again later. While standing alone on the roadside, Liza encounters ex-boxer Jay (Charlie Hunnam), who has also had a run-in with the law, and he takes her to his mother June (Sissy Spacek) and father Chet (Kris Kristofferson)’s house. Meanwhile, having been contacted by Liza, Addison has already arrived at their house and has taken Jay’s parents hostage. With Liza falling for Jay and the police closing in on her and brother, tensions rise and Addison’s behaviour becomes increasingly dangerous…
