Our Score
This well-paced chase thriller stars Eric Bana and Olivia Wilde as sibling crooks on the run from a botched casino heist. The pair decides to split up and head for the Canadian border, with Wilde hitching a ride with recently released ex-con Charlie Hunnam, who's on his way home for Thanksgiving dinner with his estranged parents. Meanwhile, a sheriff and his deputy, who also happen to be father and daughter, pursue Bana through a blizzard, unaware he's heading for the secluded farmhouse of an elderly couple awaiting the arrival of their son... Director Stefan Ruzowitzky skilfully juggles the family-conflict subplots, although the string of coincidences is, arguably, a little contrived. However, Bana's marvellously psychotic turn steals the show, while old hands Kris Kristofferson and Sissy Spacek, as Hunnam's parents, add gravitas to proceedings.

Summary

A brother and sister split up after a robbery gone wrong - he embarks on a murder spree while she seeks a place to hide. She is offered help by an ex-convict, who takes her back to his parents' home on Thanksgiving - only for the holiday to take a deadly turn as her crazed sibling and the law turn up. Crime thriller, starring Eric Bana and Olivia Wilde.
