Sam Rockwell is one of the finest actors around, but he doesn’t really get enough meaty roles to sink his teeth into. Thankfully, it looks like he delivers a pretty intense performance in this thriller. Check out the trailer for A Single Shot below.
The tragic death of a beautiful young girl starts a tense and atmospheric game of cat and mouse between hunter John Moon and the hardened backwater criminals out for his blood.
David M. Rosenthal’s white-knuckle thriller starts with a bang: a single shot, aimed at a lone deer, that hits and kills a young woman. The hunter, John Moon (Sam Rockwell, SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS), watches her die before discovering a box of money near her body. In a desperate panic, he takes the cash — hiring a low-rent lawyer (William H. Macy, FARGO) to fight his wife’s (Kelly Reilly, FLIGHT) divorce suit — and attempts to cover up the killing. But when he discovers that the money belonged to a group of hardened criminals, the hunter becomes the hunted in this tense cat-and-mouse struggle in the backwoods of West Virginia.
Starring Sam Rockwell, William H. Macy, Jeffery Wright, Jason Isaacs and Kelly Reilly.
