Details

Tom is a loving, well-respected family man from a small Indiana town. When two criminals show up at his diner, Tom is forced to take action and thwart the robbery attempt. Suddenly heralded as a local hero who took the courage to stand up to crime, people look up to Tom as a man of high moral regard. But all the media attention attracts the likes of the mob, who show up at Tom's doorstep. Is it a case of mistaken identity or does Tom have a history that no one knows about?

Critics Consensus: 

A History of Violence raises compelling and thoughtful questions about the nature of violence, while representing a return to form for director David Cronenberg -- in one of his more uncharacteristic pieces.
