“A genre film that transcends genre, an iconic American tale that is nonetheless firmly grounded in both place and time.” – The Atlantic
About the Film
“You got a gun, old man?”
“Damn right I got a gun.”
In a cinema landscape where half-cooked Southern-fried tales run rampant, Hell or High Water is the explosive neo-Western showcase that Hollywood needed. Set in west Texas, Tanner (Ben Foster) and Toby (Chris Pine) after left scrambling following the recent death of their mother, with their farm facing foreclosure. The solution to their money woes? An audacious spree of bank robberies – the only thing between the duo and their fortune is the cunning Texas ranger (Jeff Bridges) and his put-upon partner. Shot in the awe-inspiring Alamogordo Valley, Hell or High Water is a bloody, powerful and hauntingly humanist exegesis of the moral boundaries that one will break when thrown into the realm of financial crisis.
Dale Dickey, Ben Foster, Chris Pine
