Blue Ruin - Trailer
Director Jeremy SaulnierYear 2014Genre(s) Dramas
Dwight is a lonely and traumatised recluse who is living in his car when he is picked up by police. After being taken to the station, he is gently informed that a double murderer who apparently killed two people close to Dwight is going to be released due to a court plea deal. In a bid to exact revenge, Dwight goes back to his childhood home to track down the killer who changed his life by making sure he suffers the same fate as his lost loved ones. On the way, he finds himself in fighting to protect his estranged family who he has not seen in years, but proves to be less than able at murder himself.
'Blue Ruin' is a gritty revenge thriller directed and written by Jeremy Saulnier ('Murder Party'). It became a reality after Saulnier took to Kickstarter to campaign for a $35,000 funding to complete work on it and ending up raising close to $38,000. It was very much worth the effort in the end though as it won the FIPRESCI Prize at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival at its premiere. 'Blue Ruin' is set to be released in theatres and on demand on April 25th 2014.
