‘Cut Bank’ Trailer: ‘Fargo’ By Way of Montana

How this movie is seemingly flying under the radar is beyond me. Cut Bank looks to be an interesting take on a crime thriller, with shades of Fargo thrown in for good measure. It also has a stellar cast with Billy Bob Thornton, John Malkovich, Bruce Dern, and Michael Stuhlbarg. 

Dwayne McLaren (Liam Hemsworth) dreams about escaping small town life in Cut Bank, Montana, “the coldest spot in the nation,” with his vivacious girlfriend Cassandra (Teresa Palmer). When Dwayne witnesses an awful crime, he tries to leverage a bad situation into a scheme to get rich quickly but he finds that fate and an unruly accomplice are working against him. Thrust into the middle of a police investigation spearheaded by the local sheriff (John Malkovich), everything goes from bad to worse in this all-American thriller. Directed by Matt Shakman and also starring Billy Bob Thorton, Bruce Dern, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Oliver Platt.

Cut Bank will be released on April 3.
