When Nicolas Winding Refn's "Only God Forgives" debuted at the Cannes Film Festival last month, it produced a wide range of reactions, including boos and walkouts (of course, that's not the first time that's happened at Cannes). The movie, starring Ryan Gosling as an exiled fight promoter in Bangkok, has since been called "violent," "oedipal," and "bloody."
Despite the divisiveness, the one thing everyone seemed to agree on was that Kristin Scott Thomas was the best part of the film. (Variety said Ryan Gosling's performance was "easily upstaged by Kristin Scott Thomas's lip-smacking turn as a vindictive she-wolf.")
It's a very different role from the veteran actress, who's best known for her period piece performances, and this new poster from "Forgives," featuring Scott Thomas bathed in neon blue and red as she stares off into the ether, shows just how far away she is from "The English Patient."
You can check out the full poster, debuting exclusively on Moviefone, below. "Only God Forgives" hits theaters on July 19.
