SCOTT COOPER | USA | 2018 | 135 MIN | R
Set in 1892, HOSTILES tells the story of a legendary Army Captain (Christian Bale), who after stern resistance, reluctantly agrees to escort a dying Cheyenne war chief (Wes Studi) and his family back to tribal lands. Making the harrowing and perilous journey from Fort Berringer, an isolated Army outpost in New Mexico, to the grasslands of Montana, the former rivals encounter a young widow (Rosamund Pike), whose family was murdered on the plains. Together, they must join forces to overcome the punishing landscape, hostile Comanche and vicious outliers that they encounter along the way.
Hostiles is directed by Scott Cooper (BLACK MASS, OUT OF THE FURNACE, CRAZY HEART) and produced by John Lesher (BLACK MASS, BIRDMAN, FURY) and Ken Kao (THE NICE GUYS, KNIGHT OF CUPS).
Cast: Christian Bale, Rosamund Pike, Wes Studi, Jesse Plemons, Adam Beach, Rory Cochrane, Ben Foster
“Bale, in a piercing, quietly devastating performance, holds the film’s center with commanding authority. It’s a film whose brute force tempered with contemplative grace. It’s a potent and prodigious achievement.” -Peter Travers, ROLLING STONE
