The stars of the film are: Jeffrey Wright, Alexander Skarsgård, James Badge Dale, Riley Keough and Julian Black Antelope in diverse roles.
The plot of the film is centred around a retired naturalist and wolf expert Russell Core (Jeffrey Wright), who at the pleading of Medora Slone (Riley Keough), a young mother whose son was killed by a pack of wolves, embarks on his journey to the edge of civilization in northern Alaska.
During Core's attempts to help Medora in tracking down the wolves who took her son, there was a development of a strange and dangerous relationship between the two lonely souls.
But a violent chain of events ignite when Medora's husband Vernon (Alexander Skarsgård) returns home from the Iraq War and learns the news of his child's death.
Donald Marium (James Badge Dale), a local cop comes forward to stop Vernon’s vengeful violence and forces Core into the heart of darkness which is the theme of the title.
Written by Macon Blair, directed by Jeremy Saulnier and produced by Russell Ackerman, John Schoenfelder, Eva Maria Daniels, Neil Kopp, and Anish Savjani, the film Hold The Dark will start streaming on Netflix and in select theatres from Sept 28.
