The 15:17 to Paris

A true story. The real heroes.


The 15:17 to Paris
In the early evening of August 21, 2015, the world watched in stunned silence as the media reported a thwarted terrorist attack on Thalys train #9364 bound for Paris... an attempt prevented by three courageous young Americans travelling through Europe. The film follows the course of the friends’ lives, from the struggles of childhood through finding their footing in life, to the series of unlikely events leading up to the attack. Throughout the harrowing ordeal, their friendship never wavers, making it their greatest weapon and allowing them to save the lives of the more than 500 passengers on board.

What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Todd McCarthy quote iconAfter a lengthy journey, it's tickets for the terrorists.

24.com
Jake Coyle quote iconThe heroes of the train attack deserve all the praise. But zoom out a little and it's hard not to see Eastwood's America-centric focus in The 15:17 to Paris as self-serving.

Tomatometer quote iconThe 15:17 to Paris pays clumsily well-intentioned tribute to an act of heroism, but by casting the real-life individuals involved, director Clint Eastwood fatally derails his own efforts.
