Following their acclaimed work together on “Drive,” Ryan Gosling and Cannes award-winning director Nicolas Winding Refn have re-teamed for “Only God Forgives,” a film that’s rumored to be even more violent than their first collaboration. A teaser clip now online hints that the advance buzz is likely true.
Recently acquired by The Weinstein Company’s multi-platform distribution label RADiUS, the thriller centers on a man (Gosling) living in exile in Bangkok who sets out to avenge his murdered brother at the behest of his mother (Kristin Scott-Thomas, sporting blonde hair and a cool stare in the teaser). Refn and Gosling did wonders getting inside the mind of a troubled protagonist with “Drive,” and their latest looks no less dark and morally dubious than its predecessor.
