Michael Fassbender and Brendon Gleeson in a crime movie together? We’re sold. Fresh off a festival run this fall, A24‘s “Trespass Against Us” —the directorial debut of Adam Smith, a visual collaborator of The Chemical Brothers— is now dated for a January 20 2017 theatrical release. If you’re a DirectTV subscriber, you already have the ability to see it now, having started November 24th. The film follows a man (Fassbender) trying to escape the dangerous criminal milieu presided over by his savage father (Gleeson). Here’s the official synopsis:
TRESPASS AGAINST US is set across three generations of the Cutler family who live as outlaws in their own anarchic corner of Britain’s richest countryside. Chad Cutler (Michael Fassbender) is heir apparent to his bruising criminal father, Colby (Brendan Gleeson) and has been groomed to spend his life hunting, thieving and tormenting the police. But with his own son, Tyson (Georgie Smith) coming of age, Chad soon finds himself locked in a battle with his father for the future of his young family. When Colby learns of Chad’s dreams for another life he sets out to tie his son and grandson into the archaic order that has bound the Cutler family for generations. He engineers a spectacular piece of criminal business involving a heist, a high-speed car chase and a manhunt, which leaves Chad bruised and bloodied and with his very freedom at stake. With the law cracking down and his father tightening his grip, Chad is forced into increasingly desperate measures. Featuring incredible performances – and an astonishing score by The Chemical Brothers – TRESPASS AGAINST US is at once an exhilarating crime thriller and a profoundly moving story about love and family.
