Kidnappers. Mountain climbing accidents. Sniper rifles. A LONELY PLACE TO DIE is action film nirvana

You’re walking through the woods when you hear a child’s cry. Cutting through the silence like fingers on a chalkboard, the scream rings out again. You’re able to track the noise to a small clearing in the forest — it’s coming from underground. After using your hands to dig at the earth, you find, buried in a small chamber, a young girl. Half starved and completely dehydrated, she doesn’t speak English and can’t tell you how she wound up buried alive. Do you help her? Do you make her problems your own? Your altruistic answer might depend on whether or not you’ve seen A LONELY PLACE TO DIE, the new thriller from IFC Films.

Director Julian Gilbey has created a film that explores the horrible consequences that can come from sticking your nose in the problems of others. When a group of mountaineers discover a young Serbian girl buried alive in a small chamber, their attempt to bring her to safety puts them smack dab in the middle of a dangerous kidnapping plot. Now, not only must they navigate the dangerous terrain of the Scottish Highlands, they must do so while being pursued by two murderous hitmen gunning to get the child back at any cost.

Don’t miss your chance to see the movie on the big screen — if only so you can reevaluate how quickly you’re willing to risk your life the next time you decide to play hero.
