Today’s featured film at the 65th Cannes Film Festival is “Killing Them Softly,” a crime drama based on the 1974 novel “Cogan’s Trade” by George V. Higgins. The feature is directed by Andrew Dominik & stars the one & only Brad Pitt. As we mentioned before, it’s in competition for the festival’s Palme d’Or award, which coincidentally, another one of Brad Pitt’s films won last year (Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life”). According to it’s IMDb page, the plot centers around Jackie Cogan, a professional enforcer, who investigates a heist that went down during a mob-protected poker game. “Goodfellas” star Ray Liotta and Richard Jenkins are also among the cast members.
I’m really diggin’ the film’s official poster:
