Lake Tahoe, 1969. Seven strangers, each one with a secret to bury, meet at El Royale, a decadent motel with a dark past. In the course of a fateful night, everyone will have one last shot at redemption.
This Tarintino-esque character study is under-rated and under-appreciated. With an unusual narrative and talented cast I had to watch it again. The movie seems slow at some parts but the end makes up for it.
The film editing was amazing
With a really good cast this movie should have been phenomenal. Unfortunately it was a disappointment. Jeff Bridges was fantastic as usual but the rest were wooden and dull. I don’t think the brunt of the blame belongs to the actors but to the director. The story was all over the place and it never answered any of the lingering questions. So sad. This film had such promise.
