Another interesting twist in the storyline has to do with the partnership of Harrelson and Foster. According to Cinematical, their characters can’t stand each other. When you take this type of job, and compound it with an annoying co-worker, the drama will ensue. On his journey from house to house, Foster’s character also falls in love with one of the widows of a fallen soldier. The Messenger has made its rounds on various festival circuits, including Sundance, and has received many positive reviews.
The Messenger hits theaters on November 13th.
