Clearly developing a taste for playing character who operate outside of the law post-Suicide Squad and Birds of Prey, Margot Robbie has now undertaken the role of a wanted bank robber in Miles Joris-Peyrafitte‘s Dreamland.
Starring opposite Peaky Blinders‘ Finn Cole – who portrays a Texan local and Robbie’s onscreen love interest – this Bonnie & Clyde-esque affair will also include the likes of Vikings star Travis Fimmel, Tron: Legacy star Garrett Hedlund, Kerry Condon from Better Call Saul, and plenty more.
The official Dreamland synopsis is as follows:
Eugene Evans (Finn Cole) is coming of age in the Texas Dust Bowl. Clinging to a dream of escape and reunion with his biological father, Eugene and his family struggle to keep their home amidst a plague of Dust Storms and foreclosures.
In a nearby town, five innocent civilians are killed in the midst of a holdup, and the local authorities are pursuing the fugitive bank robber, Allison Wells (Margot Robbie). When a $10,000 bounty is placed for the capture of Ms. Wells, Eugene seizes the opportunity in hopes that this monetary reward will prevent the foreclosure of his family farm. However, the task comes easier than anticipated when Eugene finds her hiding out in his family farm.
Eugene discovers that Allison Wells story may be a bit different that he had thought, and there may be a better way to save his family than turn her in. It doesn’t hurt that Allison Wells is a good talker and soft on the eyes, but more than that Eugene begins to fall in love for the first time in his life because they share something else; the dream of escaping their stories.
Dreamland will hit select cinemas starting November 13th and become available on-demand come November 17th.
