Starring: Jake Gyllenhaal, Riley Keough, Adrian Martinez

Director Antoine Fuqua and Jake Gyllenhaal first partnered together for 2015’s Southpaw. Now they have another intense character study on their hands with The Guilty. Gyllenhaal’s character, Joe Baylor, works as a 911 dispatch operator in Los Angeles. The wild fires are burning across California causing thick tension in the background for first responders. Throughout Joe’s shift, he’s taking personal calls dealing with his soon to be ex-wife. Its evident Joe’s a bit of a hot head. His short-tempered nature comes out in his reactions to the severity of the people calling. One of his calls comes from a young woman who seems to have been abducted. Joe will stop at nothing to help her out despite the resilience he seems to be getting from his colleagues. Now in select theaters and streaming on Netflix
