The film was written and directed by Brian Helgeland (42), and also stars Emily Browning (Sucker Punch), Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service), and Christopher Eccleston (Thor: The Dark World).

The colorful period movie received a lukewarm reception by both the critics and U.S. audiences, garnering a 62% rating at Rotten Tomatoes based on 145 reviews and ringing up just under $2 million at the domestic box office. (It did considerably better overseas, where it grossed $41 million.)

The Blu-ray and DVD releases of the R-rated film will include filmmaker commentaries and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film.
