Out of Season

This is a dark little 2004 movie starring Dennis Hopper and Gina Gershon. Directed by Jeron O'Neill. It takes place in an Eastern seaboard tourist town during the off-season. Six rather sordid characters: an amusement park owner, his daughter, his wife (step mother), an ex-crook crippled bar owner (Hopper), and two young criminals. One is tutored in thievery by the Hopper character, the other is hired by evil step-mother to kill her husband. It builds to a rather violent climax when all these six characters mix it up. I would skip this one unless you are Dennis Hopper completist.
