This is from the writer/director of “Take Shelter” and “Mud.”
Sold. I’m in. I’ve seen those two films, and that’s enough for me to know that this one will be worth watching. It doesn’t hurt that the cast is stacked, including names such as Michael Shannon, Joel Edgerton, Kirsten Dunst, Adam Driver, and more.
Here’s the plot description, via Wikipedia:
Roy (Michael Shannon) is a father desperate to protect his uniquely gifted, eight-year-old son Alton (Jaeden Lieberher). Joined by his accomplice, Lucas (Joel Edgerton), and his ex-wife, Sarah (Kirsten Dunst), this group must race to get Alton to a secret location all while being hunted by an extreme religious sect led by Calvin Meyer (Sam Shepard) and a government task force headed up by Paul Sevier (Adam Driver). It is a full-on chase, the outcome of which could bring about a world-changing event.
The film hits theaters on March 18th, 2016. I know I’ll be there. Will you?
