Tin Star cast 

Review of "Tin Star" 10/27/17 by Suzanne
Airs now on Amazon.

This is a really good Canadian drama starring Tim Roth ("Lie to Me") as a British cop, Jim Worth, who's moved his family to this small Canadian town (they're running from trouble because he's a recovering drunk, among other things).

Some really terrible things happens to this family, and to the town. Jim has to fight his personal troubles, his family drama, and the mob, to get revenge and to try to defend the town against an evil corporation.

It's a large cast, and so the action is not always with Jim, but also with his daughter, and with the people in the oil company, and even with the villains of the show. It reminds me a little bit of the FX series "Fargo" at times because it has unusual characters and such a good and unexpected story.

All of the acting is fantastic, including Genevieve O'Reilly as his wife, Angela; Mad Men's Christina Hendricks as the PR flak for the oil company; Abigail Lawrie as his daughter, Anna; Oliver Coopersmith as Whitey; and more. Also, the cinematography is just gorgeous.

I can't really describe the plot well without giving away key points. Just take my word for it. It's worth watching and very good!! Binge it now.

MORE INFORMATION:

Amazon Original Series "Tin Star" to Debut Exclusively on Prime Video on Friday, September 29

All ten episodes of the original dramatic series-written and created by BAFTA award-winner Rowan Joffé and starring BAFTA award-winner Tim Roth and Emmy nominated Christina Hendricks-will be available on Prime Video in the US

On Friday, September 29, Amazon will premiere all ten episodes of original revenge thriller series Tin Star exclusively on Prime Video in the US. Starring BAFTA award-winner Tim Roth (The Hateful Eight) and Emmy nominated Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), penned by acclaimed screenwriter, Rowan Joffé (28 Weeks Later, The American) and produced by Kudos (The Tunnel: Sabotage, Humans, Broadchurch), Tin Star is a tale of the corruption of innocence, of murder, of grief and of all consuming revenge.

Set in the majestic Canadian Rockies, Tin Star tells the story of Jim Worth (Roth), a former British detective now small town police chief, who brings his family to the tiny, tranquil town of Little Big Bear for a better life. When a vast new oil refinery, fronted by corporate liaison Elizabeth Bradshaw (Hendricks), opens nearby and their new home is flooded with workers looking for drugs, gambling and prostitution, Jim has to work hard to protect his family and the town from organized crime.

Then crime strikes back. And when Jim's family suffers a shocking tragedy, old, dark and dangerous secrets surface. We discover that Jim is not the man we think he is but is in fact 'Jack' - the professional name for his alcoholic alter-ego: a man more unpredictable, more charismatic and infinitely more menacing than Jim.

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.

Tin Star also stars Genevieve O'Reilly (Star Wars, The Honourable Woman), Abigail Lawrie (The Casual Vacancy), Oliver Coopersmith (Dickensian), Christopher Heyerdahl (True Blood, Hell on Wheels), Stephen Walters (Outlander), Ian Puleston-Davies (Marcella), Roark Critchlow (Pretty Little Liars), Sarah Podemski (Cashing In), Ryan Kennedy (Major Crimes) and Kevin Hanchard (Orphan Black).

An Amazon Original Series in the US and produced by Kudos (Humans, Broadchurch) for Sky Atlantic in the UK, Tin Star is executive produced by Alison Jackson (Hunted) and Kudos CEO Diederick Santer (Grantchester) and produced by Jonathan Curling (The Secret) for Kudos.

Prime members can stream all 10 episodes of Tin Star and can also download the series to mobile devices for offline viewing at no additional cost to their membership.
