Director Matt Shakman cut his teeth directing FXX’s “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” but he makes his feature film directorial debut with a very different type of comedy in Cut Bank, a dark movie set in the town of Cut Bank, Montana where the town’s first murder leads to the town’s odd cast of characters turning on each other. Check out our exclusive clip from the film, featuring John Malkovich and Oliver Platt, below!
A24 is releasing the movie, which stars Liam Hemsworth as Dwayne McLaren, a young man who dreams of escaping small town life in Cut Bank with his 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. It co-stars Billy Bob Thorton, Bruce Dern, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Oliver Platt.
Cut Bank is available now on DIRECTV Cinema before its limited theatrical release on April 3. The film is rated R for violence and language.
