Galveston


SYNOPSIS

New Orleans, 1988. Roy (Ben Foster, Hell or High Water), een hitman met een geweten en een stevig drankprobleem, krijgt van maffiabaas Stan (Beau Bridges) met opzet een dodelijke missie voorgeschoteld. Maar hij overleeft de valstrik en ontdekt in de nasleep van een schietpartij het tienerhoertje Raquel (Elle Fanning, Maleficent, The Beguiled). Ze slaan samen op de vlucht en pikken onderweg haar driejarige zusje Tiffany op. Opgejaagd door de politie en Stans handlangers, duiken ze onder in Galveston, Texas, een plaatsje dat Roy kent uit zijn mysterieuze verleden. Kan dit geïmproviseerde gezinnetje van misfits alsnog een toekomst opbouwen?

Een Amerikaanse misdaadthriller/roadmovie die wurgende spanning afwisselt met momenten van broze intimiteit, met Franse flair verfilmd door Mélanie Laurent naar de roman van Nic Pizzolatto, de bedenker van True Detective.


REVIEWS

  • Rogerebert.com: Some of the darker, more brutal edges of the film hinder it at times as Laurent’s poetic visual eye and the stark ugliness of what happens here can feel at odds. But even when the movie struggles with a lead character who is kind of reprehensible, Foster and Fanning hold it together.
  • TheHollywoodReporter.com: Actor/director Melanie Laurent makes her English-language directing debut with Galveston, a seedy but sincere and strikingly attractive picture.
  • Boomhowdy.com: For Fanning it’s yet another feather in her cap, adding to an already impressive body of work that’s sure to extend for decades to come. She slides into the sweet and naive part with minimal effort. One can easily understand why Laurent has made mention that Fanning was her first and only choice for the part. It’s Ben Foster though, who cements himself as a consummate actor of note, with his understated, but impactful role.
  • TheFilmstage.com: Foster and Fanning are predictably great together, cut from the same bayou cloth.
  • Moveablefest.com: Melanie Laurent’s “Galveston” Is So Good It Should Be Criminal. The French writer/director comes out with guns blazin' in her first American film.
  • Vanyaland.com: But coming in at a brisk 90 minutes, Galveston is a neo-noir model of narrative efficiency anchored by excellent work by two of our finest actors, and a film that will hopefully serve as Laurent’s introduction to the world of English-language cinema as something other than an actress.
  • Birthmoviesdeath.com: The details that make up a great lurid chronicle are here.
  • Movietalkwithjakesalinas.com: Galveston is a very, very well made crime thriller. It’s a simple idea and a simple tale, but it’s done so effectively thanks to a great writer-director, and an equally great cast.
  • Filmschoolrejects.com: Galveston proves the right performers can make any tune dance.
  • Movieweb.com: A Thrilling Powerhouse That Leaves Its Mark
  • Austinchronicle.com: Galveston is a deeply touching exploration of the harsh world that shapes its tragic main characters.
  • Bleedingcool.com: Galveston is tough to watch at times, but with the compelling performances, slow burn pacing, and gut punch ending, it really delivers in the end.
