Hell or High Wa­ter

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Entertainment -

Chris Pine, Ben Fos­ter and Jeff Bridges

A pair of bank-rob­bing broth­ers are pur­sued by a Texas ranger in this heist-cum-west­ern with a satir­i­cal edge. The broth­ers unite to rob the bank that duped their fa­ther into sign­ing away the fam­ily farm. As they stage a se­ries of rob­beries against the dif­fer­ent branches, Jeff Bridges plays the crusty ranger hot on their tail. A ra­zor-sharp story, this West­ern has been well and truly brought into to­day’s world. WHERE TO WATCH IT

It seemed like it was be­ing told by some­body who re­ally knew what he was talk­ing about, who could shine some good light on these folks.”

Ben and Chris star as venge­ful broth­ers, while Jeff is up for Best Sup­port­ing Ac­tor..
