Hello ladies, and welcome back to the movies after the summer break. Hope it was a very enjoyable one!
This month we will be seeing Hell or High Water, a Western bank-robber movie set in present-day Texas. “Oh dear!", I hear you say – but it’s a thoughtful film, with a modern take on “bank robbery” and a wicked sense of humour. Chris Pine and Ben Foster – playing the robbers – are brothers on a mission for justice, while Jeff Bridges is the Texas ranger who tracks them down. The Director is David Mackenzie.
According to Rotten Tomatoes, the film is "solidly crafted, well-acted and eschews mindless gunplay [though gunplay there is!] in favour of confident pacing and full-bodied [rounded?] characters".
It was shown in the Un Certain Regard category at the Cannes film festival.
