Blood Ties gets my nomination for the best cast in a movie you never heard of. The film directed by Guillaume Canet (Little White Lies) stars Clive Owen, Billy Crudup, Marion Cottilard, Mila Kunis, Zoe Saldana, Mattheias Schoenaerts and James Caan.
The familiar plot set in the 1970's is about two brothers on the opposite side of the law who face off against each other.
The movie got so-so reviews on the festival circuit but a generally positive one at Cannes and other French festivals, thus the French cast sheets. Blood Ties opens Halloween day in France. No US release date has been set yet.
