Let’s take another look at Nicolas Winding Refn‘s upcoming crime thriller Only God Forgives, shall we? Three new images have arrived – nothing spectacular, but at least we finally have a chance to check out Kristin Scott Thomas who stars as Gosling’s mother Jenna, described as a merciless and terrifying mafia godmother. Head inside to find larger images & let us know what you think…
Written and directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, the movie revolves around Ryan Gosling‘s character – Julian, who is a former kickboxer and gangster living in Bangkok.
When his brother is murdered by a ruthless Thai police lieutenant, he is forced to seek vengeance or risk his own death.
Or, if you prefer the official synopsis:
Julian lives in exile in Bangkok where he runs a Thai boxing club as a front for the family’s drugs smuggling operation. When Julian’s brother Billy is killed, their mother, Jenna, arrives in the city. She wants revenge and forces Julian to find the killer. Julian’s contacts in the criminal underworld lead him directly to The Angel of Vengeance, a retired police officer who knows everything and who is both Judge and Punisher. Jenna demands that Julian kill The Angel of Vengeance, an act that will cost him dearly.
Beside Ryan Gosling and Kristin Scott Thomas, Only God Forgives also stars Vithaya Pansringarm as the film’s antagonist, Chang aka The Angel of Vengeance, Tom Burke and Gordon Brown.
The film is currently in post-production so I guess we’ll soon have more updates to share. In the meanwhile, make sure you click on these images to take a better look at the leading cast & stay tuned!
