The Comeback Trail

Comedy

USA | 2020

Directed by George Gallo
Starring Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, Tommy Lee Jones

"Director George Gallo elicits an energetic performance from De Niro who breezily brandishes the extroverted chutzpah you'd expect from a low-flying Hollywood hustler." Jim Schembri

In debt to the mob and in need of a new money making scheme to save his skin, greedy grindhouse film producer, Max Barber (Robert DeNiro), decides to produce a dangerous new film, all for the sake of killing his lead actor in a stunt so he can rake in the insurance money. But when he casts Duke Montana (Tommy Lee Jones), an aging, washed up movie star as the lead, Max never expects the depressed old drunk to be revitalised by being in front of the camera again. Unable to kill Duke in a basic stunt, Max ups the stakes, putting Duke into ever more dangerous situations. And as Duke survives stunt after stunt, Max unwittingly starts making the best movie of his career.

A cross between Get Shorty and The ProducersThe Comeback Trail, is a fun journey through the underbelly of Hollywood. Littered with a cast of unforgettable and outrageous characters, it will have you giggling.
