Edgerton Impresses In First Clip From FELONY
He may not be the flashiest actor out there but Australia's Joel Edgerton is quietly going about the business of demonstrating that he's one of the most talented of his generation. Riding off the successes of Warrior, Zero Dark Thirty and The Great Gatsby, the multi-talented Edgerton serves as both writer and star of Toronto selected thriller Felony.
A first clip has been released from the film, one that is simply a conversation between Edgerton and Tom Wilkinson. And when you can wring this much intensity out of a quiet chat ... well, that's when you know you're on to something. Check it out below.Malcolm Toohey (Edgerton) has it all: a terrific family and a reputation as an upright cop, a job he loves. One night, after celebrating a successful arrest, he makes a terrible mistake, then, to cover up that mistake, he makes the decision to lie about it -- with tragic consequences. Complicit in the affair is senior officer Carl Summer (Tom Wilkinson), an assertive watchdog of "the brethren," whose new partner Jim Melic (Jai Courtney) has the youthful arrogance of knowing very well, he thinks, what is right and what is wrong.
