Four years after co-starring in Interstellar, Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway team up for another film. Instead of a sci-fi flick, this time around its a sexy neo-noir thriller titled Serenity. Don’t be fooled by the title though, this is anything but calm or peaceful.
Baker Dill (Matthew McConaughey) is a fishing boat captain leading tours off a tranquil, tropical enclave called Plymouth Island. His quiet life is shattered, however, when his ex-wife Karen (Anne Hathaway) tracks him down with a desperate plea for help. She begs Dill to save her – and their young son – from her new, violent husband (Jason Clarke) by taking him out to sea on a fishing excursion, only to throw him to the sharks and leave him for dead. Karen’s appearance thrusts Dill back into a life he’d tried to forget, and as he struggles between right and wrong, his world is plunged into a new reality that may not be all that it seems.
Steven Knight directed and wrote the film. Diane Lane, Djimon Hounsou and Jeremy Strong also star. Serenity arrives October 19. Check out the trailer below.
