Had the honor of working on this one, great cast and crew
Sicario: Day of the Soldado
also worked on the precursor here in Tamalewood back in 2015.
Sister Helen Prejean (Sarandon) establishes a special relationship with Matthew Poncelet (Penn), a character based on convicted murderers Elmo Patrick Sonnier and Robert Lee Willie. He is a prisoner on death row in Louisiana, and she visits him as his spiritual adviser after corresponding with him.
The film was a critical and commercial success; it grossed $83 million on a budget of $11 million and received praise for the performances of Penn and Sarandon, as well as Robbins' direction. Sarandon's performance won her the Academy Award for Best Actress, while Robbins, Penn and Bruce Springsteen were nominated for Best Director, Best Actor and Best Original Song, respectively, for the single "Dead Man Walkin'".

I know full well what foreigners think of Americans . Fat , Lazy , Dumb and of course Guns. Most of the world has a general dis-like for Americans and most Americans don't realize this . It's not that they hate Americans it's that they hate our way of life , the opportunistic nature of American society is a one of a kind thing on Planet Earth and Jealousy is a very real thing.
America was originally founded to stand in contrast to that of the other European nations , Everything American was flipped to be the opposite of Old Europe e.g. the Monarchy , ... and this was all done for a Reason . THE OPPRESSIVE GOVERNMENT THAT OUR FOUNDING FATHERS WERE ESCAPING
The Constitution was written to ensure America would be different that America would be an improvement over what it is that we fought a bloody War with , Our Founders were improving upon the Failures of what it is they lived through . The Original 10 Constitutional Amendments were Written to stand through time and ensure that America would remain a beacon of Freedom to the rest of the world , Each Amendment represented a Freedom that was denied to the original founders of America .
Americans take for granted things like Religious Freedom which will get you killed in other countries , Our freedoms to have Firearms which basically no other country on Earth has , Our Freedoms to Work and Pursue a better life which does not exist in Socialist European countries the more you work in those countries the more they Tax you it's very simple the Government tells you how much you can have end of story. They control weird things like what kind of Car you can Drive and What kind of Television you can have etc etc etc the list goes on .
FREEDOM HAS A PRICE and this includes the Freedom of Speech people can say what they want when they want and again in other countries this will get you killed , The right to a Fair Trial and this includes Rapist, Murderers and Repeat offenders and again other countries they would just kill your ass or lock you up and work you to death . ...
