Michael Malarkey is Cinch Barton in the crime thriller A VIOLENT SEPARATION, about a small town deputy sheriff (Norman, played by Brenton Thwaites) who, in 1983, covers up a murder committed by his older brother Ray (Ben Robson). Norman becomes romantically involved with the victim’s sister (Alicia Debnam-Carey), complicating the coverup.
