We Gotta Get Out of This Place

 

Year: 2013
Country: USA
Run Time: 91 minutes

What if your best friend and your girlfriend were starting college soon, leaving you behind in your small Texas town—wouldn’t you do anything for one last good time with them? That’s just what BJ was looking for when he took Bobby and Sue for a weekend of partying. But when the group returns home, they quickly realize the price they paid for their carefree ways. WE GOTTA GET OUT OF THIS PLACE is part thriller, part neo-noir, and part love triangle as the three friends work to ensure that their last weekend together won’t be their final weekend together. After BJ’s boss, the hardened Giff, learns that BJ stole from him to pay for their getaway, he puts the friends’ lives on the line to make up for the betrayal. Gritty and genuine, WE GOTTA GET OUT OF THIS PLACE is a gripping ride with powerful performances by Jeremy Allen White (Bobby) and Mackenzie Davis (Sue) leading audiences through the pulpy landscape of criminals, lovers, and Texas. —T.W.
