Story


When JR (Brenton Thwaites) is sent to prison for a minor crime, he becomes the apprentice to Brendan Lynch (Ewan McGregor), Australia's public enemy number one. When JR helps Brendan break out, they go on the run and form a complex co-dependent relationship. JR quickly learns in the criminal world, life is like a game of chess. To gain control, you have to stay a few moves ahead of your opponent. Lose that control, and you risk becoming a pawn in their very dangerous game.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..excellent, complex and interesting action film..”
by MARK PIGOTT [Sydney Arts Guide]
“..Son of a Gun is entertaining and the two leads are very engaging..”
by Bobby Townsend [Something You Said]
“..from first-time feature director Julius Avery, begins with an enticingly dark first act in jail, but descends steadily downward into a mass of cliches..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
