Booze-soaked, foul-mouthed con-man Willie Soke (Billy Bob Thornton) is back to his old tricks in the sequel to Bad Santa. Teaming up once again with his sidekick, Marcus, Willie plans to pose as Santa, this time to swindle money from a charitable organization on Christmas Eve.
But this time, they’re joined by Willie‘s equally wicked mother, Sunny Soke (Kathy Bates). Meanwhile, Willie is infatuated with the curvaceous and prim Diane (Christina Hendricks), who unlike Willie, has a heart of gold. She also happens to be the charity director of the charity he plans on scamming, which throws a wrench into his plans.
eOne Films + Mr. Will want to take Toronto Readers to a Special Screening of CUT BANK with a Q&A with Director Matt Shakman! The Screening takes place Wednesday, April 1, 2015 at 7:30 PM, Yonge & Dundas Cineplex.
Official Synopsis: Dwayne McClaren, a high school star athlete recently turned auto mechanic, dreams of getting out of tiny Cut Bank, MT – the coldest town in America – and whisking his pageant-hopeful girlfriend, Cassandra, away to the big city. But his plan to do so sets in motion a deadly series of events and thrusts him into a police investigation headed by Sheriff Vogel, the protector of Cut Bank and the closest thing Dwayne has to a father figure. Panic sweeps across the community in mere hours, but things are not what they seem. Cassandra‘s father Big Stan Steeley is the only one who seems to realize this. However, the damage is already done and the events that unfold change Dwayne‘s life – and the life of the town – forever.
