Synopsis:

From one of the most exciting British filmmakers working today, Ben Wheatley follows hot on the heels of High-Rise with this all-guns-blazing action thriller.

Set in 1978 Massachusetts, Justine (Larson) has arranged a deal on behalf of two Irishmen (Murphy & Smiley) to buy a stash of guns. But when shots are fired in the handover, a heart stopping game of survival ensues. The standout cast have great fun with this shoot-’em-up and the playful script’s wry dialogue - penned by Wheatley and long-time collaborator Amy Jump - provide some deliciously dark comic moments as the manic standoff escalates.
