CAST
GALVESTON (2019)
Starring Ben Foster, Elle Fanning, Beau Bridges, Adepero Oduye, Lili Reinhart, María Valverde, Robert Aramayo and C.k. McFarland. Directed by Mélanie Laurent.

Debt Collector and sometime-killer Roy senses that his boss, a dangerous, violent and pitiless loan-shark, wants him dead, and his next routine assignment is indeed a death-trap. Yet what the would-be killers do to Roy is not the same as what he does to them...after a smoking spasm of violence, they are mostly dead and he is just about alive. Before making his getaway, Roy discovers young prostitute Rocky hiding in the back room, and he sees something in her frightened, defiant eyes that prompts a fateful decision. He takes her with him as he flees New Orleans to Galveston - an action as ill-advised as it is inescapable. Rocky is too young, too tough, too sexy - and far too much trouble, especially when she makes a detour to liberate her 3 year old sister from the clutches of their seedy step-father. Like the smoke dancing upwards from a barrel of a gun, there’s no way things are going to end well.

REVIEWS Galveston - Elle Fanning & Ben Foster save an uneven crime drama

THE PROGRAM (2015)
Starring Ben Foster, Chris O'Dowd, Guillaume Canet, Jesse Plemons, Dustin Hoffman and Elaine Cassidy. Directed by Stephen Frears.

Winning the Tour de France an unprecedented seven times, Lance retires as one of the great sporting heroes of our time, and worth millions of dollars. Sports writer David Walsh is at first charmed by Lance’s charisma and talent, but as he probes further, he believes the world is being sold a lie. After speaking out about his concerns, Walsh finds himself ostracised by the cycling community. As a lone voice he perseveres, but it will be several years before Lance is exposed.
