(US, 2017) Director: Steven Soderbergh. Cast: Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Farrah Mackenzie, Riley Keough, Daniel Craig, Katie Holmes, Charles Halford, Katherine Waterston, Dwight Yoakam, Hilary Swank.

Master of the heist Steven Soderbergh (the Ocean’s franchise) is back with his first film in four years, but this time his thieves are down-at-heel, down home denizens of small town West Virginia. Ringleader Channing Tatum is an out of work former jock who cooks up a whacked-out scheme to rob a NASCAR racetrack in North Carolina (it involves underground tunnels and Gummy Bears.) His accomplices are his younger brother (Adam Driver), an Iraq vet who lost an arm but makes a mean martini; his spark plug of a sister (Riley Keough), and an amusing Daniel Craig as the brains of the posse (who first has to be busted out of prison). Funny, smart, with a touch of political satire, Logan Lucky is a nod to red state desperados, looking for any way up and out. 119 min.
“Logan Lucky is a magnificent movie that comes disguised as a modest one.” – Stephanie Zacharek , Time Magazine.
