Story


David M. Rosenthal's white-knuckle thriller starts with a bang: a single shot, aimed at a lone deer, that hits and kills a young woman. The hunter, John Moon (Sam Rockwell, SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS), watches her die before discovering a box of money near her body. In a desperate panic, he takes the cash - hiring a low-rent lawyer (William H. Macy, FARGO) to fight his wife's (Kelly Reilly, FLIGHT) divorce suit - and attempts to cover up the killing. But when he discovers that the money belonged to a group of hardened criminals, the hunter becomes the hunted in this tense cat-and-mouse struggle in the backwoods of West Virginia.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the drama is mostly simple, elemental even: The inevitable rolls in like a storm..”
by Alan Scherstuhl [Village Voice]
“..what passes for a plot has been done a thousand times before-in much better films than A Single Shot..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..despite its byzantine narrative, the film remains never less than absorbing, as the walls slowly close in on this good-hearted but ultimately flawed protagonist..”
by Stephen Garrett [Time Out New York]
