Inspired by a true story, Hit Man follows the life of a philosophy professor (Glen Powell) who is also a mysterious hitman working undercover for the police. When he decides to break protocol to protect a desperate woman (Adria Arjona) trying to escape an abusive relationship, he begins flirting with the idea of becoming a real criminal, blurring the line that separates him from his false persona. Veering between thriller and true crime comedy, Hit Man won over audiences at the Toronto and Venice film festivals and was described by critics as one of Linklater's wittiest films.
