Two Texas brothers plan to save their farm come HELL OR HIGH WATER
We love a good heist film and it looks like the upcoming HELL OR HIGH WATER qualifies as one of those. Chris Pine (Star Trek: Into Darkness) and Ben Foster (Lone Survivor) star as two West Texas brothers that plan a robbery to help save their family farm from foreclosure. Jeff Bridges (The Big Lebowski) and Gil Birmingham play the Texas Rangers that try to stop them. The film which is directed by David Mackenzie (Starred Up) and written by Taylor Sheridan (Sicario) also stars Katy Mixon, Christopher W. Garci, Kevin Rankin and Melanie Papalia.
HELL OR HIGH WATER has been selected to feature in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.
Official Synopsis: A story about the collision of the Old and New West, two brothers — Toby (Chris Pine), a straight-living, divorced father trying to make a better life for his son; and Tanner (Ben Foster), a short-tempered ex-con with a loose trigger finger — come together to rob branch after branch of the bank that is foreclosing on their family land. The hold-ups are part of a last-ditch scheme to take back a future that powerful forces beyond their control have stolen from under their feet. Vengeance seems to be theirs until they find themselves in the crosshairs of a relentless, foul-mouthed Texas Ranger (Jeff Bridges) looking for one last triumph on the eve of his retirement. As the brothers plot a final bank heist to complete their plan, a showdown looms at the crossroads where the last honest law man and a pair of brothers with nothing to live for except family collide.
“Hell Or High Water” opens on August 12th in limited release and in full release on August 19th.
