Story


Brought to life with exquisite detail and rich cinematography by Bradford Young (winner of the US Dramatic Cinematography Award at Sundance), the gritty landscape of 1970s Texas Hill Country is the backdrop for this mood-drenched collision of love and crime. After his pregnant wife (Rooney Mara) makes one false move during a bloody shootout, a bank robber (Casey Affleck) faces a 25-year sentence that destroys his dreams of a family life. Shot through with the yearning and melancholy of a folk ballad, David Lowery's directorial breakthrough-one of the most acclaimed films at Sundance and a special Critics' Week selection at Cannes-extends the Bonnie and Clyde tradition with its breathtaking meditation on the fragility and transience of love.
