A sensation at film festivals from Cannes to Sundance, BLUE RUIN is a classic American revenge story crackling with sudden violence and black humor. A peaceful vagrant finds his quiet life upended by dreadful news and sets off toward his childhood home to carry out an act of vengeance. Since he is only an amateur assassin, he winds up in a brutal fight to protect his estranged family. Sophomore writer/director Jeremy Saulnier grounds the film’s humanity in the captivating eyes of lead actor Macon Blair, whose thrilling portrayal burns with the intensity of righteous duty.
