Director Antoine Fuqua adapts Gustav Moller’s acclaimed Danish drama Den Skyldige in The Guilty. Jake Gyllenhaal plays a troubled police detective demoted to 911 operator scrambling to save a distressed caller during a harrowing day of escalating situations, culminating in a reckoning both surprising and expected. Also starring Ethan Hawke, Peter Sarsgaard, Riley Keough, Paul Dano, and Byron Bowers, based on a screenplay from Nic Pizzolatto, creator of the HBO series, True Dectective.

Listen carefully. There's more to the story than meets the eye. The film takes place over the course of a single morning in a 911 dispatch call center. Call operator Joe Baylor (Gyllenhaal) tries to save a caller in grave danger—but he soon discovers that nothing is as it seems, and facing the truth is the only way out.

In Select Theaters September 24 and on Netflix October 1.

MontiLee Stormer is a writer of horror, dark and urban fantasy. She’s also is a troublemaker, concocting acts of mayhem and despair for her own selfish pleasure. An avid movie watcher, she prefers horror but will see just about anything if you're buying. Poltergeist (1982) is her favorite movie and she actively hates The Shining (1980) due to its racism, misogyny, the butchering of the source material. She could host a TEDtalk on this single subject. Writing about herself in the third person is just a bonus.
