Could Kristin Scott Thomas
steal the show despite Only God Forgives
is the reunion between Drive
director and star, Nicolas Winding Refn
and Ryan Gosling
? The strongest argument are these three new clips from the movie.
Best-known for her roles in films like The English Patient
and Tell No One
, an English-French actress plays the vicious organized crimelord mother to Gosling’s character, and in the latest batch of clips we see that her words are as brutal as the film’s many acts of stylish violence. She wants the cop (Vithaya Pansringarm
) who killed her favourite son to pay the ultimate price.
In recent weeks, we’ve seen several trailers
and posters and these three clips don’t disappoint.
The film co-starring Tom Burke
and Byron Gibson
Only God Forgives
hits Cannes next month and will open in theaters on July 19th, 2013.
Why don’t you just see it yourself.
Here’s a synopsis:
Julian (Gosling) 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 (Kristin Scott Thomas), 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.
