Tin Star (Amazon 2017, Tim Roth, Christina Hendricks)

Tin Star

In crime drama Tin Star Jim Worth, played by Tim Roth, is the former British detective now in charge of police in the small town of Little Big Bear in the Canadian Rockies.

Worth had moved to the supposedly sleepy town to provide a better life for his family but all that is thrown into the air when a major oil refinery, run by Elizabeth Bradshaw (played by Christina Hendricks), opens and the town is soon full of workers causing trouble. Their arrival and their money also brings organised crime onto the scene.

When a tragedy then hit’s Worth’s family his real self is revealed.

Part drama, part thriller and part dark comedy, Tin Star is an exhilaratingly smart, breathlessly suspenseful thrill ride of a show as deceit, guilt, love, and all-consuming rage lead inexorably to a gut-wrenching finale.
