This thriller plays in the 40s, the looks, the music- its pretty well done. Most people missed this film because 2010 had so many big blockbustercome out. And as usual independent movies have no chance against them; for example the “Twilight” flicks.
With Casey Affleck, Kate Hudson and Jessica Alba in the lead roles.
Sadism and masochism beneath a veneer of revenge. Lou Ford is a mild-mannered sheriff’s deputy in an Oklahoma oil town in the late 1940s. His boss sends him to roust a prostitute living in a rural house. She slaps him; he hits her, then, after daily sex for the next few weeks, he decides it’s love. She’s devoted to him and becomes his pawn in a revenge plot she thinks is to shakedown the son of Chester Conway, the town’s wealthy king of construction. Lou has a different plan, and bodies pile up as murder leads to murder. The district attorney suspects Lou, and Conway may have an inkling, but Lou stays cool. Is love, or at least peace, in the cards?
