In the early 1980s, 22-year-old Israeli backpacker Yossi Ghinsberg and two friends – Swiss teacher Marcus Stamm and American photographer Kevin Gale – set off from the Bolivian city of La Paz on what was supposed to be the adventure of a lifetime. Leading the way into the uncharted Amazon was an Austrian expat named Karl Ruprechter, who had met the friends just days before and claimed to be familiar with the region. But their dream trip soon turned into a wilderness nightmare from which not all of the men returned.

SON OF A GUN (2014)
Starring Ewan McGregor, Brenton Thwaites, Alicia Vikander and Jacek Koman. Directed by Julius Avery.

After a chance encounter, JR finds himself under the watchful eye of Australia’s most notorious criminal, Brendan Lynch. But protection comes at a price; Lynch and his crew have plans for their young protégé and soon JR’s debt is called in. Outside, JR must help secure Lynch’s freedom, staging a daring prison break. As a reward, he’s invited to join the crew as they plan a series of heists that promise to deliver millions. But as things start to go wrong, a deadly game of cat and mouse ensues and JR soon finds himself on a collision course with his former mentor, unsure of whom he can trust. A visceral, edge-of-your-seat heist thriller, 'Son Of A Gun' promises a uniquely Australian take on the genre, with Ewan McGregor as you’ve never seen him before.
