'Unhinged': Meet Russell Crowe, Caren Pistorius, Jimmi Simpson and rest of the cast of the road rage thriller
Russell Crowe makes a frighteningly scary bad guy in this movie
Russell Crowe is the last man you should mess with. In his upcoming psychological thriller, he will show you why. Playing the role of a man straight out of one's nightmares, Crowe takes road rage to a new level in 'Unhinged'.
Rachel (Caren Pistorius) is running late to work with her son in the backseat when she gets into a small argument with a stranger at a traffic light. Ideally, this conversation should be done with the minute the cars depart, but no. Crow's 'Stranger' follows Rachel and threatens everything she holds dear and close in order to apparently teach her a lesson or as he says in the trailer, "I need you to learn what a bad day really is".
What follows is an unpredictable series of events that will leave you at the edge of your seat. Directed by Derrick Borte and a screenplay written by Carl Elsworth, 'Unhinged' will see a release on VoD on November 17, 2020. But before that, meet the cast.
