Jeremy Saulnier‘s Blue Ruin is one of the best films of 2014 you probably haven’t seen (but if you have Netflix Instant, you can watch it now!). It’s a unique spin on the revenge genre, and once you see it, you’ll likely be amped to see Saulnier’s next film, the upcoming thriller Green Room. The story revolves around a young punk rock band that find themselves trapped in a secluded venue after stumbling upon a horrific act of violence, fighting for their lives against a gang of white power skinheads intent on eliminating all witnesses. Patrick Stewart stars as Darcy Banker, an unflinching and industrial leader of a ferocious white supremacist fiefdom based in the Pacific Northwest.
You can check out the image after the jump, and be sure that we’re definitely going to be keeping this film on our radar, not only because of Saulnier and Stewart, but also because the excellent cast includes Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Alia Shawkat, Joe Cole, Callum Turner, Mark Webber, Kai Lennox, Eric Edelstein, and the return of Blue Ruin star Macon Blair.
