Time and time again Michael Fassbender show us just how much of a marvellous performer he is, and his new dramatic performance in Trespass Against Us is sure to leave an impression.
Here’s the synopsis:
Gyspy outlaw Chad Cutler (Fassbender) makes his living as a wheelman who commits daring robberies to provide for his family and their traveller community. But when the law begins to fall down upon him he decides to leave his criminal past behind for the good of his family. But this decision brings him into contact with his own criminal father Colby (Brendan Gleeson).
Fassbender appears to be at his rawest as the deeply flawed Chad, who walks a very dangerous tight rope as both criminal and father. While flawed criminals are nothing new, what makes Trespass Against Us so compelling is the emphasis that director Adam Smith has placed on the family drama, and the heartbreak and anguish that comes from Chad’s choices.
Smith also strikes a unique balance with both sides of Chad’s character: ace wheelman who seems to be able to out drive anything, and that of a loving family man who is just trying to build a better life for his loved ones.
Trespass Against Us will be released on January 20.
