“A career-defining, powerfully physical lead performance.” --VARIETY
“Never less than mesmerizing.” --THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
An acclaimed selection from this past year's Fantastic Fest, BULLHEAD is a visceral saga bursting with rage that TwitchFilm calls “one of the most original crime films in recent memory." After being hand-picked by Alamo Drafthouse Founder and CEO Tim League, BULLHEAD will be released theatrically in the U.S. by Drafthouse Films, the Alamo's new film distribution arm. Following festival screenings and award wins worldwide, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced that BULLHEAD has been nominated for and Academy Award in the Best Foreign Language Film category.
Perhaps the year’s most stunning international debut, Michael R. Roskam’s BULLHEAD is a harrowing tale of revenge, redemption and fate. Domineering cattle farmer Jacky Vanmarsenille (Mattias Schoenaerts in a ferocious breakout performance), constantly pumped on steroids and hormones, initiates a shady deal with a notorious mafioso meat trader. When an investigating federal agent is assassinated and a woman from his traumatic past resurfaces, Jacky must confront his demons and face the far-reaching consequences of his decisions.
