Plot Summary
Sonny (Timothy Olyphant) had to be strong to endure prison. By the time he arrives home to a small coastal town, he has developed a deep-rooted look of determination. But for what is unclear. A beef with the local underworld kingpin for whom he took a fall? Or is it to lay claim to his love for Ann (Sarah Wynter), now married to his best friend, the local sheriff (Josh Brolin). Sonny's return begins as a quiet rain that soon kicks up a storm that rocks the very foundation of the town.

  • Nunez's dialogue, and the paces he puts this threesome through, just don't ring true. Coastlines is the stuff of pulp, seriously at odds with what the writer-director has always done best. That is, show the inner workings of people, their needs, their fears, their small dreams. show more

  • Lacks the subtle power of the previous two efforts, although boasting effective performances from its terrific cast. show more

  • It's only a mild disappointment. The talent is still there, the film better than most. It just needs less crime, more love. show more
