I’m always game for a good crime story. I’m hoping that American Dream will be just that. I like the poster and the trailer looks good.
I especially like the start — if that’s what happen to a guy who owes $126.00, can you imagine what happens when you owe a whole lot more? The problem I have with stories about guys who get in too deep to shylocks is, they knew what they were getting into when they got the cash advance. It doesn’t make the interest or beatdowns (or worse) right, but as my man Rocky said, “If you wanna dance, ya gotta pay the band. If you wanna borrow, ya gotta pay the man.”
Fingers crossed that American Dream is a good crime yarn.
Academy Award winning cinematographer Janusz Kaminski (Saving Private Ryan) directs this intense thriller about the brutal struggle for success. Desperate for cash, entrepreneurs Scott (Luke Bracey, Point Break ) and Nicky (Michiel Huisman, Game of Thrones) turn to Russian mobster Yuri (Nick Stahl, Sin City). After they refuse the funding he offers, Yuri gets revenge by trying to take over their construction project. The partners are terrified until Nicky’s tough Russian girlfriend Ana decides to take action herself.
