The crime story (starring Mila Kunis, Clive Owen, Billy Crudup, Marion Cotillard, Zoe Saldana, James Caan, Matthias Schoenaerts) takes place in New York in 1974, and centers on two brothers. One has recently been released from prison, and the other is a cop who is trying to help his brother out only to discover that old habits die hard.
Blood Ties set to be released in French cinemas on October 30. TIFF premiere on September 9!
New York, 1974… Chris Pierzynski has just been released after years in prison for his part in a gangland murder. Waiting reluctantly outside the prison gates is his younger brother, Frank, a cop with a bright future. Chris and Frank have always been different, and their father, who raised them alone, has always favored Chris – despite all his troubles. Frank has known this since they were kids, and it eats at him like nothing else.
But blood is the tie that binds. Frank gives his brother a chance: he shares his home, finds Chris a job, helps him reconnect with his kids and ex-wife. When Chris meets Natalie, the promise of a new life beckons, but his past quickly catches up with him, and his return to a life of crime is inevitable. For Frank, his brother’s descent is the final betrayal, and he banishes Chris from his life. Leaving the police department, Frank moves in with Vanessa, the former girlfriend of a dangerous Mob hit man.
Chris has killed before, and he will kill again. Frank is powerless to stop him. But despite all the rivalries, the violent conflicts, the painful betrayals, Chris will stop at nothing to make the ultimate sacrifice.
Official promo video following Mila’s journey as she tours
‘If someone presents you a gift with a gemstone in it, knowing that they put thought into where it came from gives it more meaning. It’s easy to buy something that looks impressive, but knowing that it’s ethically sourced and that no-one suffered to produce it is, to my mind, the most important thing.
It’s really a luxury to own jewellery and gemstones. If you’re in a position to do so, you’re fortunate. I think it’s important to pay attention to what you’re wearing and where it came from.
While in Africa, I learned that the entire journey that each Gemfields stone takes is carefully considered and that the environment and the local communities where its mines are located are held in the highest regard … I truly believe in Gemfields’ mission of ethical mining, and I absolutely have fallen in love with the rarity, beauty and history of emeralds.”
