Early 1970s. Four strangers check in at the El Royale Hotel. The hotel is deserted, staffed by a single desk clerk. Some of the new guests' reasons for being there are less than innocent and some are not who they appear to be.
Released the same day as First Man (2018), another period piece set in 1969, shot on film, with Shea Whigham in the cast.
So, Miles, what is this? Some sort of pervert hotel?
Father Daniel Flynn: The kid can't answer you, you tied his mouth shut.
When we flashback to Father Flynn during the robbery, he grabs a handful of cash and stuck it in his bag. As he walks out of the rear of the armored truck and looks at the green truck, the doors are shut on the green pickup. After he argues with his co-conspirators. He backs up and looks at the green Chevy pickup, and this time the driver door is open.
There are almost no opening credits. Only the film's title is shown after the first scene.
