In This Gray Place
Aleksander Ristic gives a commanding performance in this meditative drama about love and consequences. Aaron (Ristic) is a petty criminal from the wrong side of the tracks. Wounded, out of breath, and hefting a sack of jewels, he breaks into a rest-stop bathroom and barricades himself in. It soon becomes clear he’s been part of a robbery gone wrong. Surrounded by police, he quickly finds himself backed into a corner, with only a dying cell phone to call for help. Dodging his girlfriend’s prying questions, Aaron and his accomplice must devise a plan to hide the jewels before it’s too late. With a rich supporting cast and striking visuals, “In This Gray Place” is a story of desperation clashing with destiny.
