Watch: Acclaimed Thriller 'Blue Ruin' Official Trailer with Macon Blair
"I'd forgive you if you were crazy, but you're not…" Radius-TWC has finally debuted a full trailer for Blue Ruin, the slow burn revenge thriller that has received endless praise from critics at numerous film festivals. It premiered in Cannes, played at TIFF, and is currently playing at Sundance. I saw it at TIFF and called it "one of the best damn revenge films of 2013." Macon Blair (Gretchen, 7 Couches, Hellbenders) stars as a "mysterious outsider" whose life life is turned upside down when he returns to his childhood home to carry out an act of vengeance. It's brutal and bloody, but a sleek thriller, one of the best I caught last year. This trailer gives a good impression of the tone of the film, but there's much more to it than it shows. Take a look.
Synopsis: A peaceful vagrant finds his quiet life upended by dreadful news and sets off for his childhood home to carry out an act of vengeance. Since he is only an amateur assassin, he winds up in a brutal fight to protect his estranged family. Blue Ruin is written and directed by the cinematographer-turned-filmmaker Jeremy Saulnier, of the film Murder Party and a few shorts previously. This film first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and also played at Locarno, Deauville, Austin, Chicago, Toronto and Fantastic Fest before showing up at the Sundance Film Festival this year. Here's the newest poster via The Dissolve:
