Joel Edgerton Starring Thriller FELONY Gets A Bad Poster, Great Trailer
Here's how the Toronto International Film Festival described the film when it premiered:
Malcolm Toohey (Edgerton) has it all: a terrific family and a reputation as an upright cop, a job he loves. One night, after celebrating a successful arrest, he makes a terrible mistake, then, to cover up that mistake, he makes the decision to lie about it -- with tragic consequences. Complicit in the affair is senior officer Carl Summer (Tom Wilkinson), an assertive watchdog of "the brethren," whose new partner Jim Melic (Jai Courtney) has the youthful arrogance of knowing very well, he thinks, what is right and what is wrong.
