Brutal and compelling revenge film! If you turn away from the movie after the very hard and maybe even too explicit beginning, you will miss out on the why. With Red, White & Blue, director Simon Rumley crafts a formidable “trip through the darkest corners of the American psyche”
Erica drifts through the bars of Austin going from one sexual partner to another, never connecting emotionally. That changes when she meets Nate (Noah Taylor, “Shine,” “Almost Famous”), a discharged Iraqi vet who is more interested in being Erica’s friend than her latest conquest. A strong bond of friendship develops between them, but Erica’s background intrudes in the form of Franki, a wannabe rock star whose sudden presence sets the stage for a shocking conclusion.
