  • 2012 60 minutes

    A hard hitting drama about the bond between two friends, whose characters are loosely inspired on the characters in John Steinbeck's novel Of Mice And Men.

    Bryce (Brolin) is a successful man who returns to his tiny hometown for a visit. While there, he runs into his old friend Nick (Nivola). The two decide to go out for the night. When they enter a bar, Bryce encounters Lissa (Witherspoon), a blonde temptress whom he eventually takes home for the night. When he awakens, Lissa informs him that she is underage and threatens to tell the police that Bryce has committed statutory rape. Bryce panics and decides to tie her up and hide her away in the basement. He then makes a call to Nick. Unbeknownst to Bryce, Lissa is actually Nick's girlfriend. The two had schemed to use Bryce's money to leave their tiny hometown.
