Only God Forgives

Producer(s): Lene Børglum
U.S. Distributor: RADiUS-TWC

Put a hype, young filmmaker who is already known among cinephile circles (Pusher series) and team him with a versatile, talented actor who has a knack for choosing roles that only show his prowess and you’ve got a match made in heaven. Drive‘s Nicolas Winding Refn re-teaming with Ryan Gosling for a second time in a row will turn out to be recommended viewing for those who want style and substance with a good old fashion blood bath.

Gist: A Bangkok police lieutenant and a gangster settle their differences in a Thai-boxing match.

Release Date: Cannes Film Festival Main Competition is a sure thing. RADiUS-TWC will likley have this hit streets soon after.
