Sweet Virginia (2017) S: Bernthal, Abbott, Poots, Dewitt

A mysterious stranger sends shockwaves through a close-knit community in this nerve-jangling slice of raw suspense. In the wake of a triple murder that leaves the residents of a remote Alaskan outpost on edge, tightly wound drifter Elwood (Christopher Abbott) checks into a motel run by Sam (Jon Bernthal), a former rodeo champion whose imposing physical presence conceals a troubled soul. Bound together by their outsider status, the two men strike up an uneasy friendship-a dangerous association that will set off a new wave of violence and unleash Sam's darkest demons. Driven by tour de force performances from Christopher Abbott and Jon Bernthal, this precision crafted thriller pulses with an air of quivering dread. With Imogen Poots and Rosemarie Dewitt.

Jon Bernthal is making a name for himself. I like it.

I was really hoping to see Joyce Dewitt pop up in this.
Seriously, what the hell has she been doing all this time???

Just called this in tonight on On Demand. Holy shit, what a terrific nail biting film. So reminiscent of "Blood Simple" at times. Great script and amazing performances from every one. And the score was really effective. Highly highly recommended. One of 2017's best. 9/10 rating from me.
