Netflix's upcoming film The Guilty was announced way back in 2018 when Jake Gyllenhaal acquired remaking rights for a Danish movie of the same name. Gyllenhal is simultaneously pulling off the roles of producer and protagonist.
The movie has already premiered at this year's Toronto International Film Festival on September 11. American filmmaker Antoine Fuqua is directing the Netflix crime drama thriller. He has received praise for his work while being slightly criticized due to comparisons with the original.
The Guilty is also receiving a limited release in the United States before its arrival on Netflix. This article will discuss the streaming details, runtime, cast, plot, and other information about the Jake Gyllenhaal film.
