To celebrate the release of Measure of Revenge, the new thriller out in US cinemas this weekend, we had the pleasure of chatting to stars Melissa Leo and Bella Thorne about the film.
Broadway actress Lillian Cooper (Academy Award®-winner Melissa Leo) is making her final on-stage appearance when her famous son, Curtis (Jake Weary), is found dead. When his death is ruled as an accidental overdose, a suspicious Lillian decides to take matters into her own hands. On a quest for answers, she strikes up an unlikely alliance with her son’s drug dealer, Taz (Bella Thorne), setting in motion a bloody warpath to uncover the truth and punish those who killed her son.
Chatting to Scott J. Davis, Leo and Thorne chat about the lure of the story, the unlimited bounds of motherhood, working together on such a tense film, and their shared love of Christian Bale. Also, with the Oscars this weekend, we had to ask Leo about her infamous speech from 2011 when she won for The Fighter and dropped f-bombs like Kate Winslet in front of Kirk Douglas.
Measure of Revenge is out now in select US cinemas and is available on-demand and digital download. No UK release date has yet been set.
