Freaky facial hair aside, former baby-faced Beverly Hills, 90210 resident Jason Priestley sharpens his indie acting chops (first seen in Love and Death on Long Island) in The Highwayman as a damaged, family-obsessed killer who helps wild kitten Ziggy (Charlize Theron doppelganger Laura Harris) find the father who abandoned her (McHattie). Engagingly shot, director Keoni Waxman’s disjointed drama should have cut some of the treacly heart tugging in favor of more inspired bad-guy buddy chemistry. C+
