”The Nice Guys"

Holland March (Ryan Gosling) is a down-on-his-luck private eye in 1977 Los Angeles. Jackson Healy (Russell Crowe) is a hired enforcer who hurts people for a living.

Fate turns them into unlikely partners after a young woman named Amelia (Margaret Qualley) mysteriously disappears. Healy and March soon learn the hard way that some dangerous people are also looking for Amelia. Their investigation takes them to dark places as anyone else who gets involved in the case seems to wind up dead.

Although the above plot would tend to indicate a sombre film this is in fact an out and out comedy with amazing chemistry between Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe. Yes, there are killings and some violence, but there is also an awful lot of laughter along the way.
