Dolan’s Cadillac – Trailer for film based on Stephen King short story

Posted by LiveFor on May 19, 2009

Dolan’s Cadillac stars Christian Slater and, like The Shawshank Redemption and The Mist, it is based on a Stephen King short story.

Quite a few of Mr King’s tales have been turned into films. Some have been great, some have been alright and some have been dreadful. Have a look at this trailer and let me know which category this one falls in.

Robinson is a non-descript middle school teacher whose beloved wife, Elizabeth, witnesses an execution in the desert and becomes a target for the executioner, notorious Las Vegas crime boss Jimmy Dolan. Dolan’s vast wealth was accumulated through his human trafficking operation, a lucrative business he will not jeopardize. The mobster succeeds in having Elizabeth killed before she can testify against him. Without a witness to the murders, Dolan goes free. The Knowledge that Dolan is behind Elizabeth’s death fosters in Robinson an insatiable thirst for revenge. However, Dolan is virtually untouchable traveling only in his custom Cadillac with tank-like protection. On a steep descent into madness, Robinson begins seeing visions of his dead wife wherever he goes. Spurred on by Elizabeth’s spectre, Robinson begins his elaborate plan to kill Jimmy Dolan.
