(2019) (Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama: A charter fishing boat captain gets a lucrative offer from his ex-wife to kill her abusive husband.
- Baker Dill (MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY) is a military veteran who now lives on Plymouth Island working as a charter fishing boat captain alongside his first mate, Duke (DJIMON HOUNSOU). When not providing bedroom services to Constance (DIANE LANE), he's otherwise obsessed with catching a huge tuna that's eluded him for some time, much to the occasional detriment of his business. His obsession with that has even drawn an outsider, Reid Miller (JEREMY STRONG), to seek him out with a device that might make his fishing dream of landing the big one a reality.
But he gets a more lucrative offer when his ex-wife, Karen (ANNE HATHAWAY), shows up in town. She's now married to Frank (JASON CLARKE), an uber-wealthy but abusive man, particularly when he's been drinking which is occurring more often. Karen worries about her safety and that of her and Baker's 13-year-old son, Patrick (RAFAEL SAYEGH), who lives with them and deals with the turmoil by staying in his room playing video games of his own design.
Accordingly, Karen tells Baker she'll pay him $10 million if he'll take Frank out for a day of fishing, get him drunk, and then send him overboard to the sharks. Baker initially wants no part of this, but considering his poor financial situation and worrying about his son, he begins to consider taking her up on her offer.
