SynopsisA gripping mix of friendship, violence and redemption erupts in the contemporary South in this adaptation of Larry Brown`s novel, celebrated at once for its grit and its deeply moving core. The film brings Nicolas Cage back to his indie roots in the title role as the hard-living, hot-tempered, ex-con Joe Ransom, who is just trying to dodge his instincts for trouble until he meets a hard-luck kid played by Tye Sheridan, who awakens in him a fierce and tender-hearted protector.
