Product description

Product Description

From acclaimed filmmaker Jeff Nichols (Take Shelter, Mud) comes a genre-defying thriller starring long-time collaborator Michael Shannon (Take Shelter, 99 Homes) alongside a brilliant ensemble cast including Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Girls), Kirsten Dunst (Fargo, Spider-Man), Joel Edgerton (Warrior), Sam Shepard (Bloodline, Mud) and talented newcomer Jaeden Lieberher (St Vincent).

Roy (Michael Shannon) is a father desperate to protect his uniquely gifted eight-year-old son in this gripping take on the sci-fi movie, which proves once again that director Jeff Nichols is one of the most compelling storytellers of our time. As father and son go on the run, an intense chase ensues as they are hunted down by a mysterious cult and a clandestine government agency – the outcome of which could bring about a world-changing event.

By Call me Al TOP 500 REVIEWER on 13 May 2017
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I can understand why some might be dissatisfied by Jeff Nichols’ SF thriller which resonates with echoes of John Carpenter’s Starman and Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind and E.T. the Extra Terrestrial. The pace of the film is very much akin to these movies, as also is its ambition. There are no significant explosions or battles while the CGI is sparingly used, and more effective because of it. Furthermore, there are many intriguing mysteries which remain unresolved at the end of the film. This is one of those enigmatic movies which you either loathe or love, and I am definitely in the camp of the latter. This is confident storytelling supported by powerful visuals and a sublime musical score. Set in the backwoods of rural Texas and the swampy reeds of Louisiana the narrative focusses on the purposeful road trip of a father and his gifted eight year old son pursued by the government and a doomsday religious cult. Accompanied by his wife and a childhood friend, father and son relentlessly make their way to a specific set of geographical coordinates at a specific date. Ironically, it is the gritty realistic mundanity of the locations which gives the film an unexpected believability, despite its undoubtedly fantastical premise. In this respect its subdued tone has much in common with Gareth Edwards’ 2010 SF film Monsters. Moreover, it is the relationships between the characters which draws you in, in particular that between father and son.Read more ›

I thought this was an excellent piece of science fiction that has obviously been heavily influenced by the sci-fi on the run thrillers from the 80's. It begins with a kidnapping, the audience doesn't know who the kidnappers are or why they have kidnapped the boy at the centre of the story but what unfolds is a magical piece of cinema about sacrifice and finding our place in the world.

This is a much under-rated film. The acting is superb, especially the youngest cast member, and the plot delivers a solid return. I'm not going to go into specifics - every reviewer before me has done that - but suffice to say this movie is more than well worth a watch. I loved it.

In the same vein as other recent retro nostalgic sci fi genre (the TV series Stranger Things on Netflix for example), it keeps you guessing most of the way and the reveal is sort of worth waiting for. Really interesting main characters who you find out little by little a bit more about as the film progresses. Entertaining throughout.

i was nicely surprised by this film. i usually dont buy movies based on a good trailer but i took a punt with this one. a nice simple story with nothing over the top and some good performances(Micheal shannon in particular very good) well worth a look for the price it is

Really interesting and accomplished piece of science fiction. Gritty, well-acted and set against a backdrop of real America (not flamboyant film sets that are over-the-top glitzy.) All makes for an original film and story. The ending is also refreshing - managing to keep things subtle, which for me meant the film stayed in the mind long after the closing credits had rolled. Well done!

Interesting characters that unfold during the film, good acting, but reminds me of all those alien films from the '80s, but a good watch 3 stars
