Blood Ties (2013) (C)
"An authentic crime movie that gives Clive Owen his best role in years."
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly.
Chris (Clive Owen) has just been released after several years in prison following a gangland murder. Reluctantly waiting for him outside the prison gates is his younger brother, Frank (Billy Crudup), a cop with a bright future.
Blood ties are the ones that bind, and Frank, hoping that his brother has changed, is willing to give him a chance.
But Chris' inevitable descent back into a life of crime will poise the brothers at opposite ends of the law in a battle in which only one can prevail. -- (C) Les Productions Du Trésor, 2013, France/USA.
