"After twenty years in prison, Foley (Jackson) is finished with the grifter's life. When he meets an elusive young woman named Iris (Negga), the possibility of a new start looks real. But his past is proving to be a stubborn companion: Ethan (Kirby), the son of his former partner, has an ingenious plan and he wants Foley in. The harder he tries to escape his past, the tighter he is ensnared in Ethan's web of secrets, until it becomes all too clear to Foley that some wrongs can never be made right."

    Saw the movie - good one. Samuel L. is at the top of his game playing a newly released ex con trying to live the straight life. See how his life changes after he runs into his partner's son.... Really worth watching -

          The title could use some work, though. I'd have to throw this in the running for worst titles ever, along with The American and The Town.

            Although the story is cliche, this is a very nice take on something that's been done before. Sounds cool.
