Crime, Thriller



Contract killer Vincent takes cab driver Max hostage, forcing him to drive around night-time LA as he completes a series of hits. The cabbie must do all he can to outwit his murderous fare and survive till morning - but not before the two develop an unlikely bond. Collateral is a taut and absorbing psychological thriller, and director Michael Mann's vision of nocturnal Los Angeles is as sleek and unsettling as Tom Cruise's revelatory performance as the sinister Vincent.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
