In the underbelly of an Australian prison, criminal rookie JR (Brenton Thwaites) meets Brendan Lynch (Ewan McGregor) and helps him get out of prison, but that’s only the beginning for Australian director Julius Avery’s bullet-fueled action flick.
JR gets sucked into the heavy hitting crime world Lynch operates in, his most daring task coming in the form of a gold mine heist. That, along with JR’s romantic interest in femme fatale Tasha (Alicia Vikander), raises the stakes of a game that plays out like a vicious round of chess.
“Son of a Gun,” also starring Jacek Koman, will be available exclusively on DirecTV December 11 and released in theaters by A24 on January 16.
