Homeless drop-out Dwight Evans (Blair) learns that the man convicted of his parents’ murders has been released from prison. Setting out to even the score with a revenge killing, Dwight reignites his family’s feud with the Clelands, a powerful, dangerous criminal clan.
A lean, tough, thoughtful thriller with depth, Blue Ruin establishes Jeremy Saulnier as a promising indie auteur and Macon Blair as an unusual leading man.
