This noir drama stars Oscar-nominated actor Michael Shannon (Boardwalk Empire, Nocturnal Animals) as John Rosow, a private detective hired to tail a man, Harold Fullmer, on a train from Chicago to Los Angeles.
Rosow gradually uncovers Harold’s identity as a missing person; one
of the thousands presumed dead after the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the
World Trade Center. Persuaded by a large reward, Rosow is charged with
bringing Harold back to his wife in New York City against his will.
Ultimately Rosow must confront whether the decision to return Harold to a
life that no longer exists is the right one.
Official Selection at the Sundance Film Festival, Special Mention Award Winner at the Moscow International Film Festival.
“(Noah Buschel) crafts a convincing noir tale, with a sense of realism that makes the experience pleasingly voyeuristic.” – Peter Hartlaub, The San Francisco Chronicle
