Only God Forgives

July 19 - August 8, 2013

France | 2013 | 89 Minutes | Nicolas Winding Refn

The director and star of Drive, Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling, reunite for this visionary Bangkok-set thriller, featuring a surprisingly fiendish performance from Kristin Scott Thomas.

Mixing his signature hyper-violent style with flourishes of David Lynch inspired surrealism, Refn's newest film follows Julian (Gosling), a respected figure in the criminal underworld of Bangkok who runs a Thai boxing club and smuggling ring. When his brother Billy is suddenly murdered, their mother Crystal (Thomas), who is also the head of a vast criminal organization, arrives from the US to collect the body. Crazy with rage and thirsty for vengeance she demands the heads of the murderers, leading Julian to confront Chang (Vithaya Pansringarm), a mysterious retired policeman - and figurehead of a divine justice.
