The Brave One Synopsis
Psychological Thriller. New York radio host Erica Bain (Jodie Foster) has a life that she loves and a fiance she adores. All of it is taken from her when a brutal attack leaves Erica badly wounded and her fiance dead. Unable to move past the tragedy, Erica begins prowling the city streets at night to track down the men she holds responsible. Her dark pursuit of justice catches the public's attention, and the city is riveted by her anonymous exploits. But with the NYPD desperate to find the culprit and a dogged police detective (Terrence Howard) hot on her trail, she must decide whether her quest for revenge is truly the right path, or if she is becoming the very thing she is trying to stop.
The Brave One looks like a very cool mix of every Jodie Foster movie you’ve ever seen and the great M. Night Shyamalan movie Unbreakable. It’s the movie that Rosario’s misguided rape-revenge movie Descent wishes it could have been, or rather it’s the movie I wish god-awful Descent was.
Jodie Foster picks her projects carefully. She’s in a place where she doesn’t have to work, and so she doesn’t unless she thinks it’s worth it. As a result, she’s avoided becoming a harbinger of doom like say, Ben Kingsley. When you see Jodie Foster’s name on a poster, you can be sure you’re in for something that probably doesn’t suck. The Brave One should be good.
