Description

In this stylized thriller from director David Cronenberg ("The Fly," "Eastern Promises"), Academy Award-nominee Viggo Mortensen (The Lord of the Rings trilogy," "Eastern Promises") stars as Tom McKenna, a well-respected man who leads a quiet, charmed life with his loving wife and family in a small town. But when he kills a robber in self-defense at the diner he runs, Tom is lauded by the national media as a vigilante hero. Unfortunately, the media spotlight also brings him to the attention of some sleazy criminals who recognize Tom as a former associate gone underground. Now, to protect his family from certain peril, Tom must return to his secret past and confront A History of Violence. Also starring Maria Bello ("World Trade Center," "Coyote Ugly"), Academy Award-nominee and Golden Globe-winner Ed Harris ("Glengarry Glen Ross," "The Truman Show") and Academy Award-winner William Hurt ("The Kiss of the Spider Woman," "Michael").
