Plot Summary

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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The feel of the movie is intimate and handmade, as if Lowery were renewing, lovingly and poignantly, the landscape's ruined landmarks and infusing them with his own memories and dreams. – Richard Brody, New Yorker, Aug 19, 2013

Fresh: It is not a large film. But Lowery may well be a large talent, and he sure knows how to cast the right actors. – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, Aug 29, 2013

Rotten: The tone never changes. Scenes aren't inflected, and when the end comes, it registers, but without much impact. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Aug 22, 2013

Fresh: The characters are too ordinary to care deeply for and the story doesn't add up to much, but Lowery has made a shrine to his actors, to the land through which they move, and to the kind of cinema that once sustained us. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Aug 22, 2013

Beautiful beginning, beautiful end, and everything in between was just okay.

Beautifully done....

I thoroughly enjoyed this film. The acting was excellent, the story well told.

Lovely . . .

Great movie. Casey Afleck continues to garner my attention as a very good actor. And Rooney Mara is superb. The movie is beautifully written, shot, and directed.
