Rating: 4.5/5.0

B.J. Novak portrays Ben, a dyed in the wool New Yorker who works as a podcaster for New Yorker Magazine. When the family of an old hook-up named Abilene (Lio Tipton) calls to tell him that she died, they expect him to come to the funeral, thinking he was her boyfriend. Curious, he goes to her Texas hometown, and finds an unexpected story that Abilene might have been murdered, and it would make a great podcast. He stays with Abilene’s family, including overly affectionate brother Ty (Boyd Holbrook) and kid brother nicknamed El Stupido (Eli Bickel). The townsfolk include a philosophical record producer named Quentin (Ashton Kutcher) and prime suspect Sancholo (Zach Villa). Nothing is what it seems.

“Vengeance” opens in theaters on July 29th. Featuring B.J. Novak, Eli Bickel, Boyd Holbrook, Zach Villa, Lio Tipton and Ashton Kutcher. Written and directed by B.J. Novak. Rated “R”
