Clean – starring Adrien Brody and directed by Paul Solet
Former assassins have a tough time readjusting back to normal lives. Despite their newfound start, trouble seems to follow them around. In Clean, a former hit man is thrust back to action after someone hurts a girl that reminds him of his daughter.
Here’s the official synopsis for Clean:
Clean, a man with a violent and criminal past, seeks redemption after being awakened by personal tragedy. He dedicates his life to his broken community, and the safety of a young girl who reminds him of his daughter. When her life is put in danger, it ignites a return to the darkness and violence he’s worked so hard to leave behind. In his attempts to save her, he might very well save himself.
The film stars Adrien Brody, Glenn Fleshler, Richie Merritt, Chandler Air-DuPont, Mykelti Williamson, RZA, Michelle Wilson, and John Bianco. Paul Solet directed the movie from the screenplay written by Solet and Brody.
