This weekend, Jon Bernthal is going to be slipping on the skull to take down a bunch of bad guys in Netflix's The Punisher, but he also has an intriguing bit of pulp fiction dropping on VOD.
Sweet Virginia revolves around an ex-rodeo rider (Bernthal) who strikes up a friendship with a young man (Christopher Abbott) who may be behind the violence occurring in their small town. From the looks of the trailer, Jamie Dagg's thriller is a rather dark and stormy affair:
That's two minutes of nefarious whispers, gun violence, and chilly weather. Co-starring Rosemarie DeWitt (Rachel Getting Married) and Imogen Poots (Green Room), this intense, austere potboiler seems to be in the vein of Jeremy Saulnier's work (Blue Ruin, Green Room). Once you're done with your Punisher binge-watch, maybe give it a look on November 17th.
