Daniel Alfredson’s claim to fame involves directing the second and third installments of the Swedish “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” trilogy. But his forays into English language filmmaking haven’t fared so well. His last outing was the tepid “Kidnapping Mr. Heineken,” which was followed by “Go With Me,” which premiered last September at the Venice Film Festival to a lukewarm response.
Based on the book by Castle Freeman Jr, and starring Julia Stiles, Anthony Hopkins, Ray Liotta and Hal Holbrook, the story follows a young woman who is assaulted and stalked by local logging town thug Blackway. She refuses to leave town, and a posse of sorts comes together to take on Blackway.
Go With Me opens on April 22nd. Check out the first international trailer below, and view the screencaps here.
