‘The Pledge’ stars Jack Nicholson, Robin Wright, Patricia Clarkson, Benicio Del Toro, Aaron Eckhart, Costas Mandylor, Helen Mirren, Vanessa Redgrave, Mickey Rourke, Pauline Roberts, Eileen Ryan, Sam Shepard and Harry Dean Stanton.
Plot of ‘The Pledge’:
The night he retires as a Nevada sheriff, Jerry Black (Jack Nicholson) pledges to the mother (Patricia Clarkson) of a murdered girl that he will find the killer. Jerry doesn’t believe the police arrested the right man.
When Jerry becomes close to a single mother, Lori (Robin Wright), he feels he has reason to believe the murderer may be targeting her eight-year-old daughter, and finds himself using her as a decoy in order to bring the killer to justice.
