Featuring a sprawling cast — Clive Owen, Billy Crudup, Marion Cotillard, Zoe Saldana, Mila Kunis, Matthias Schoenaerts, Noah Emmerich, Lili Taylor, Domenick Lombardozzi, John Ventimiglia, Griffin Dunne, Jamie Hector, Yul Vazquez and James Caan — a gritty 1970's New York City (shot on location too), and co-written by James Gray, there are a lot of reasons to give Guillaume Canet's "Blood Ties" a look. And if you didn't get a chance to catch it in theatres, we've got a few copies for some lucky readers.

Blood Ties

Featuring a sprawling cast — Clive Owen, Billy Crudup, Marion Cotillard, Zoe Saldana, Mila Kunis, Matthias Schoenaerts, Noah Emmerich, Lili Taylor, Domenick Lombardozzi, John Ventimiglia, Griffin Dunne, Jamie Hector, Yul Vazquez and James Caan — a gritty 1970's New York City (shot on location too), and co-written by James Gray, there are a lot of reasons to give Guillaume Canet's "Blood Ties" a look. And if you didn't get a chance to catch it in theatres, we've got a few copies for some lucky readers.


But to recap, the film follows Frank (Crudup), a cop with an aspiring future, who has to toe the line between family and the badge, when his ex-con brother Chris (Owen) gets out of the jail. Will Chris fall back into his old ways? And if he does, can Frank look the other way? It's tale of sons and siblings, but it wasn't necessarily always an easy shoot. In this exclusive clip from the bonus features of the film, Marion Cotillard, Zoe Saldana and Billy Crudup talk about working with a French director on an English set and the difficulties that can arise.
