Three new clips from Nicolas Winding Refn’s (Drive) upcoming crime thriller Only God Forgives starring Ryan Gosling & Kristin Scott Thomas have been released online. The film centers on Julian, a drug-smuggler thriving in Bangkok’s criminal underworld, who sees his life get even more complicated when his mother compels him to find and kill whoever is responsible for his brother’s recent death. The film will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this week and hits theaters May 23.
Julian (Gosling) lives in exile in Bangkok where he runs a Thai boxing club as a front for the family’s drugs smuggling operation. When Julian’s brother Billy is killed their mother, Jenna (Kristen Scott Thomas), arrives in the city. She wants revenge and forces Julian to find the killer. Julian’s contacts in the criminal underworld lead him directly to The Angel of Vengeance, a retired police officer who knows everything and who is both Judge and Punisher. Jenna demands that Julian kill The Angel of Vengeance, an act that will cost him dearly.
