In the film Whitaker will play "a man struggling to rebuild his life in a small New Mexico town after 18 years in prison. Keitel will play the Sheriff who launches a campaign to return Whitaker’s character to prison for life."
Rachid Bouchareb is directing from a script he co-wrote with Olivier Lorelle and Yasmina Khadra.
Its nice to see Keitel in something that has the potential to be good. The last thing I saw him in was Little Fockers, or as I like to call it Wasting Good Actors to Beat the Focking Shit Out if a Tired Premise.
