The Merry Gentleman is a slow moving, sometimes frightening, and sometimes touching new film directed by and starring Michael Keaton.
He plays a quiet, guilty hit man who befriends a woman running away from her abusive husband. Wouldn't you know it, the hit man and the girl become friends in a movie that is both soft-spoken and unique.
The Merry Gentleman is rated R and it won't knock you over with style and substance but it's an appealing, interesting adult film. It's also nice to see Michael Keaton back on screen in something watchable.
