Mel Gibson gives his backstory at an AA meeting in this Blood Father clip

Blood Father Mel Gibson

The new Mel Gibson vehicle BLOOD FATHER actually looks frustratingly decent. In this new clip from the film, a visit to the AA for some much-needed exposition proves that he's still got the gruff charisma of a movie star. Director Jean-François Richet certainly knows how to work to the actor's strengths. Check it out for yourself below!

Written by Peter Craig and Andrea Berloff from a novel by Craig, it tells the following story: 

After her drug kingpin boyfriend frames her for stealing a fortune in cartel cash, 18 year old LYDIA goes on the run, with only one ally in this whole wide world: her perennial screw-up of a dad, JOHN LINK, who's been a drunk, a drug addict, a motorcycle outlaw, and a convict in his time, and now is determined to keep his little girl from harm and, for once in his life, do the right thing...

The film also stars Erin Moriarty, Diego Luna, Elisabeth Röhm, Michael Parks, and William H. Macy.

BLOOD FATHER is set to be released in the UK on August 25th and in the US on August 26th.
