Festival alum (2012's Hellbenders) Macon Blair gives a tense, harrowing performance as Blue Ruin's lead, as his character, the drifter Dwight, carries out an act of vengeance that will also protect his estranged family. Writer-director Jeremy Saulnier's Blue Ruin is "a lean and suspenseful genre piece," says Variety, that won the FIPRESCI Prize at Cannes.
Below is a clip from Blue Ruin, which plays this year's Toronto International Film Festival within the Vanguard programme.
