Originally called The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman, it stars Shia LaBeouf, Rupert Grint, Evan Rachel Wood, Mads Mikkelsen, Aubrey Plaza and Til Schweiger.
Charlie Countryman (LaBeouf) is just a normal guy until he meets and falls in love with Gabi (Wood), a Romanian girl. Gabi is married to Nigel (Mikkelsen), a violent and mentally unstable crime boss with a gang of thugs at his disposal. Armed with little more than his wit and naïve charm, Charlie endures one bruising beat down after another to woo Gabi and keep her out of harm’s way. Finally his exploits of blind valor create such a mess that he’s left with only one way out; to save the girl of his dreams – he has to die.
Directed by Fredrik Bond.
