The story of Dick Cheney, an unassuming bureaucratic Washington insider, who quietly wielded immense power as Vice President to George W. Bush, reshaping the country and the globe in ways that we still feel today.
Clint Eastwood stars as Earl Stone, a man in his 80s who is broke, alone, and facing foreclosure of his business when he is offered a job that simply requires him to drive. Easy enough, but, unbeknownst to Earl, he's just signed on as a drug courier for a Mexican cartel. He does well, so well, in fact, that his cargo increases exponentially, and Earl is assigned a handler. But he isn't the only one keeping tabs on Earl; the mysterious new drug mule has also hit the radar of hard-charging DEA agent Colin Bates. And even as his money problems become a thing of the past, Earl's past mistakes start to weigh heavily on him, and it's uncertain if he'll have time to right those wrongs before law enforcement, or the cartel's enforcers, catch up to him."
In recent years, Clint Eastwood has only rarely been on camera, but Earl convinced him to rethink the experience. His last role was in Trouble with the Curve (2012). See more »

How did you come into all that money?
Well, I just... Well, I'm not gonna lie to you. I'm a high-end gigolo.
[laughing and wheezing]
Come on. Seriously, come on.
All right, seriously. Okay. I've become a drug mule for the cartel. And I've got 305 kilos of cocaine sitting right in the back of my truck out there.
[eyeing him closely then laughs again]
