Finestkind tells the story of two brothers (Ben Foster & Toby Wallace), raised in different worlds, who are reunited as adults over a fateful summer. Set against the backdrop of commercial fishing, the story takes on primal stakes when desperate circumstances force the brothers to strike a deal with a violent Boston crime gang. Along the way, a young woman (Jenna Ortega) finds herself caught perilously in the middle. Sacrifices must be made and bonds between brothers, friends, lovers, and a father (Tommy Lee Jones) and his son are put to the ultimate test.
Finestkind is both written and directed by Brian Helgeland (director of Payback, A Knight’s Tale, The Order, 42, Legend; and writer of Man on Fire, Green Zone, Robin Hood, Spenser Confidentia), and starring Ben Foster, Toby Wallace, Jenna Ortega and Tommy Lee Jones.
Finestkind premieres on December 15 on Paramount+.
