Following on from 2015’s magnificent ‘Sicario’, writer Taylor Sheridan returns, alongside new director Stefano Sollima (Gomorrah), with this edge of your seat United States/Mexico border thriller.
In the drug war, there are no rules - and as the cartels have begun trafficking terrorists across the US border, federal agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) calls on the mysterious Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro), whose family was murdered by a cartel kingpin, to escalate the war in nefarious ways. Alejandro kidnaps the kingpin's daughter to inflame the conflict - but when the girl is seen as collateral damage, her fate will come between the two men as they question everything they are fighting for. Stefano Sollima, whose credits include the Italian crime sagas ‘Gomorrah’ and ‘Suburra’ has been brought on to direct and add his uniquely realistic tones to the film. The cast also includes Catherine Keener and Matthew Modine.
