DeadfallEric Bana (Hanna), Olivia Wilde (The Words) and Charlie Hunnam (TV’s Sons of Anarchy) star in Deadfall, which was called “a sexy crime thriller” by ET Online.

The movie tells the story of siblings Addison (Bana) and Liza (Wilde) whose casino heist went wrong. Making their escape to the Canadian border on icy roads, they have a car accident and leave their wheel man and a state trooper dead. Now on foot, they’re hit by a whiteout blizzard and split up. Addison goes off on foot, while Liza is picked up by an ex-boxer (Hunnam) on his way to his parents’ house, June (Sissy Spacek, The Help) and retired sheriff Chet (Kris Kristofferson, Heaven’s Gate). It’s the setting for a family reunion that becomes a showdown.

The R-rated independent film was screened in a handful of theaters, but its biggest audience comes with this DVD and Blu-ray release.

Critics gave Deadfall mixed reviews, with Philadelphia Inquirer‘s Steven Rea calling it “fast and fatalistic,” but Newark Star-Ledger‘s Stephen Whitty said it’s “the sort of movie best encountered accidentally and for free, caught on basic cable late at night.”

The DVD and Blu-ray carries these special features:

  • behind-the-scenes featurettes
  • “Snow & Western”
  • “Family”
  • production interviews with Bana, Wilde and director Stefan Ruzowitzky (The Counterfeiters)
  • extended interview with Ruzowitzky
  • behind-the-scenes footage
