Recently Michael Fassbender has played a mutant on a mission, a man with a Macintosh, and Macbeth. Now he finds himself in a caravan family of criminals in a new indie thriller.
Trespass Against Us sees Michael Fassbender as Chad Cutler, one chain in three generations of a family who have been outlaws living in the country for decades. Brendan Gleeson plays his father who proudly passes the mantle down, but it appears there’s a kink in the chain as Chad realizes he doesn’t want his son Tyson to follow in his footsteps. Though he’s attempted to stop his criminal ways, he can’t help but take on one last job from his father in order to finally leave it all behind.

Before you watch Michael Fassbender play a man descended from a long line of assassins, how about watching Michael Fassbender as a man descended from a long line of low-level criminals? The actor recently hit TIFF with Trespass Against Us, which chronicles three generations of a criminal family in the British countryside.
Brendon Gleeson plays patriarch Colby, who’s alternately charming and intimidating, while Fassbender plays his son Chad. Father and son don’t always see eye to eye, but their tensions really boil over when Chad decides he wants out of the family lifestyle for the sake of his son, young Tyson (Georgie Smith). Trespass Against Us is the feature directing debut of Adam Smith, whose work you may have seen on the British show Skins and Doctor Who. Smith also shot a documentary for the Chemical Brothers, who have returned the favor by scoring Trespass Against Us. Watch the Trespass Against Us trailer below. Read More »

Many directors make their narrative feature debuts on small, making dirt-cheap indies with no-name leads. Not Adam Smith. The TV and music video helmer has set white-hot actor Michael Fassbender to star in his gangster pic Trespass Against Us, and The Chemical Brothers to score.
The script, by Alastair Siddons, has Fassbender following the opposite trajectory of his The Counselor arc: Instead of sliding into a life of crime, Trespass Against Us‘s protagonist will try to climb out of the one he was already born into. Hit the jump for plot details and more.
