TIFF 2015: SHIA LABEOUF & GARY OLDMAN STAR IN THE WAR DRAMA “MAN DOWN”

TIFF Gala Presentation: Shia LaBeouf, Kate Mara and Gary Oldman star in this dystopian thriller about a former Marine desperately searching for his wife and son in a post-apocalyptic America.

Man Down stars Shia LaBeouf as Gabriel Drummer, a man devastated by war, loss, and the collapse of everything he knows.

Drummer was a husband, a father, and a US Marine. But that was back before the end of civilization as we know it. Now Gabriel wanders a post-apocalyptic landscape with his best friend and fellow soldier Devin (Jai Courtney), struggling to survive in the face of constant danger and deprivation. Gabriel also struggles with memories: of the terrible things he experienced in Afghanistan; of his beloved wife, Natalie (Kate Mara), and how their marriage began to come apart; of his long and disjointed interview with Captain Peyton (Oldman), a military psychiatrist assigned to assess Gabriel.

As the memories flow over him, burgeoning rage and regret drive Gabriel to seize control of his situation using the only tools he has at his disposal.
