Watch: First Clip From FELONY, Starring Joel Edgerton, Tom Wilkinson & Jai Courtney
Malcolm Toohey has it all: a terrific family and a reputation as an upright cop, a job he loves. One night, after celebrating a successful arrest, he makes a terrible mistake, then, to cover up that mistake, he makes the decision to lie about it — with tragic consequences. Complicit in the affair is senior officer Carl Summer, an assertive watchdog of “the brethren,” whose new partner Jim Melic has the youthful arrogance of knowing very well, he thinks, what is right and what is wrong.And here’s what it looks like: [jwplayer mediaid=”169131″] Described as a stylish, gripping, compulsively watchable story with an almost unsolvable dilemma at its core, Felony stars Edgerton as Malcolm, Wilkinson as Carl, Courtney as Jim, and the rest of the cast includes Sarah Roberts and Melissa George. Felony has been selected to be screened in the Special Presentation section at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, so I guess we’ll pretty soon have more updates to share. Let us know what you think about the clip & stay tuned for more!
