Melissa Leo, Rupert Grint, Til Schweiger and Vincent D'Onofrio round out the cast.

The film, which was originally titled "The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman," has played Sundance and Berlin, among other fests, to relatively positive reviews. THR, for one, called it "a promising feature debut with this fanciful crime-drama romance that gratifyingly eschews strict genre classification."

The film hits theaters November 15. Watch below.
