Blood Father movie quotes provide the dialogue to the action film about a father who helps his estranged daughter run from a dangerous gang and the law. Jean-François Richet directed the movie which was adapted by Peter Craig and Andrea Berloff from the novel of the same name by Peter Craig. After premiering at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, Blood Father opened theatrically on August 26, 2016.
In Blood Father, war veteran and ex-con turned tattoo artist John Link (Mel Gibson) receives a call from daughter Lydia (Erin Moriarty), with whom he hasn't spoken for many years. Lydia explains that she's in trouble and needs money immediately. John goes on to learn that a gang is after Lydia, who is using drugs, because she killed her boyfriend, Jonah (Diego Luna).
The gang members (including Richard Cabral and Daniel Moncada) show up at John's tattoo shop looking for Lydia only to be drove away by John's friend Kirby (William H. Macy). John and Lydia flee and soon find out that Lydia is being pursued by the cops as well for the murder. As if things couldn't get worse, the gang goes on to kidnap Lydia and kill Kirby, all of which John feels he must correct in a violent and deadly manner.

A Lot of People Looking for Me

You Could Go Home
