Shot Caller

 

Thanks to our good friends at Icon we have 5 double passes to give away to celebrate the release of two brand new films in cinemas on November 30th – Shot Caller and Sweet Virginia.

SHOT CALLER

Jacob (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is a successful businessman, who after a killing a man in a DUI car accident is sent to a maximum-security prison where he soon realises he must adapt or die. SHOT CALLER explores the human condition and how far one man will go to protect his family.

SWEET VIRGINIA

When former rodeo champ-turned-motel-owner Sam (Jon Bernthal) befriends Elwood (Christopher Abbott), he is unaware that the man is responsible for a spate of violence that has suddenly gripped their small Alaskan town. Two women (Imogen Poots and Rosemarie DeWitt) are widowed, but all may not be as it seems. Written by the China brothers, SWEET VIRGINIA offers a terse and dark journey, filled with haunted souls.
