OK! (USA) - - Entertainment -

Clint East­wood pulls dou­ble duty as both di­rec­tor and star of this crime flick, which is based on a true story. The Os­car win­ner plays down-on-his­luck war vet­eran Earl Stone, who’s es­tranged from his fam­ily and fac­ing fore­clo­sure on his busi­ness; so when he’s of­fered a well-pay­ing job as a driver, he ac­cepts with­out blink­ing an eye. Earl soon comes to re­al­ize he’s act­ing as a drug courier for a Mex­i­can car­tel — and, as it turns out, is pretty good at it. But his suc­cess at­tracts the at­ten­tion of DEA agent Colin Bates (Bradley Cooper), and sud­denly fi­nan­cial woes be­come the least of Earl’s prob­lems.

“I look up to him so much,” Bradley said of Clint, who he first worked with on Amer­i­can Sniper.
