Jake Gyllenhaal plays Lou Bloom, a young man who discovers the underground world of Los Angeles freelance crime journalism.
Set in the after-dark underbelly of modern-day L.A., Bloom, desperate for work, stumbles across a camera crew who document the city’s darkest criminal activity in a profession known as ‘nightcrawling’ – a dangerous game of cat and mouse with the town’s lawless.
Helped by Nina (Rene Russo), a local TV news pro, Bloom finds his own crew and immerses himself in the hazardous production. In the incessant quest for footage, Bloom becomes the star of his own gritty story.
This tense film noir will be released on 17 October 2014. Check out the trailer below.
