Galveston (2018)

Mélanie Laurent directs Ben Foster, Elle Fanning and Beau Bridges in this neo-noir Western where a hitman rescues a young whore and her little girl.

Decent action, rote miserablism dramatics. Foster and Fanning are far too good to ever be unengaging, it looks appropriately gritty and sweaty. Just travels from its well trodden A-B with enough flair to survive but not enough to meet the expectations brung along by the talent involved.
