Last fall, IFC Films acquired stateside rights to this Samuel L. Jackson starrer – the David Weaver-directed neo noir thriller titled The Samaritan, which co-stars Ethiopian-Irish actress Ruth Negga and Brit Tom Wilkinson.
Shot in Toronto and Rio De Janeiro, with the combined financial backing of both a UK-based production house, Quickfire Films, and the Canadian state film fund, Samuel L. Jackson plays a character named Foley, described as “a grifter trying to escape from his past having spent 20 years in prison. But he gets ensnared in the plans of a young protege and it becomes all too clear to Foley that some wrongs can never be made right.”
IFC released it in theaters on May 18th, in 3 theaters, playing for just 1 week, grossing $2,521.
The film is currently available on DVD and Blu-ray as of today, so you can rent or buy.
