First Look: Ryan Gosling in Only God Forgives

Only God Forgives PosterFilmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn doesn’t post often to Twitter, but when he does, he normally has some film news. This time he posted to show off the first teaser poster for Only God Forgives. Only God Forgives reunites Winding Refn with his Drive leading man Ryan Gosling who looks pretty roughed up on this teaser poster. The cast also includes Kristin Scott-Thomas, Vithaya Pansringarm, and Yaya Ying.
 
The Plot:
 
Bangkok. Ten years ago Julian killed a cop and went on the run. Now he manages a Thai boxing club as a front for a drugs operation. Respected in the criminal underworld, deep inside, he feels empty.
 
When Julian’s brother murders a prostitute the police call on retired cop Chang – the Angel of Vengeance. Chang allows the father to kill his daughter’s murderer, then ‘restores order’ by chopping off the man’s right hand. Julian’s mother Jenna – the head of a powerful criminal organization – arrives in Bangkok to collect her son’s body. She dispatches Julian to find his killers and ‘raise hell’.
 
Increasingly obsessed with the Angel of Vengeance, Julian challenges him to a boxing match, hoping that by defeating him he might find spiritual release… but Chang triumphs. A furious Jenna plots revenge and the stage is set for a bloody journey through betrayal and vengeance towards a final confrontation and the possibility of redemption.
