Galveston est un thriller policier américain réalisé par Mélanie Laurent, sorti en 2018. Il s'agit de l’adaptation du roman du même nom de Nic Pizzolatto (2010), qui signe lui-même le scénario sous le pseudonyme de Jim Hammett, et du premier long métrage américain de la réalisatrice.

Synopsis

En 1988 à La Nouvelle-Orléans, plus rien ne va pour le petit truand Roy Cady. Endetté, il apprend qu'il est atteint d'un cancer du poumon et que son patron l’envoie dans un traquenard évident. Roy n'a alors qu'une option : fuir. Il part alors en cavale et rencontre sur sa route Raquel Arceneaux, une jeune prostituée elle aussi écorchée par la vie. Ils se rendent à Galveston au Texas.

Badlands is set in 1959 and narrated by the impressionable 15 year-old Holly Sargis (Spacek), a teenage girl living in a dead-end South Dakota town called Fort Dupree. She has been estranged from her sign painter father ever since her mother died of pneumonia some years earlier. One day she meets the 25-year-old garbage collector Kit Carruthers (Sheen). Kit is a young, troubled, psychopathic greaser, who resembles James Dean, an actor Holly admires. Kit charms Holly, and she slowly falls in love with him. Holly's narration, describing her adventures with Kit in romantic clichés, is juxtaposed as Kit's increasingly antisocial and violent behavior is slowly revealed. Holly's father disagrees with their relationship, so he kills Holly's dog. Kit kills him in retaliation. They then fake suicide by burning down the house and take off on the run together, making their way towards the Badlands of Montana, they leave a trail of dispassionate and seemingly random murders throughout the midwest behind them. Their faked suicide didn't work, however, but despite bounty hunters and police on their tail, it does not hinder their killing spree. The two are eventually arrested; Kit is executed for his crimes, while Holly receives probation.
