What is John Woo’s Silent Night About?
“From legendary director John Woo and the producer of John Wick comes the gritty revenge tale of a tormented father (Joel Kinnaman) who witnesses his young son die when caught in a gang’s crossfire on Christmas Eve,” an official synopsis for Silent Night reads.
“While recovering from a wound that costs him his voice, Kinnaman makes vengeance his life’s mission and embarks on a punishing training regimen in order to avenge his son’s death,” it continues. “Full of Woo’s signature style, Silent Night redefines the action genre with visceral thrill-a-minute storytelling.”
Woo directed Silent Night from a screenplay by Robert Archer Lynn. Woo also serves as a producer on the film alongside Christian Mercuri, Lori Tilkin deFelice, Basil Iwanyk, and Erica Lee.
Silent Night premieres in theaters on December 1.
