About the Movie
Academy Award® winner Nicolas Cage stars as Joe, a hard-living ex-con who is the unlikeliest of role models. But when he meets a troubled 15-year-old homeless boy (Tye Sheridan) desperately in need of help, Joe is faced with the heartbreaking choice of redemption or ruin.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The film belongs to Cage. You can feel his compassion as Joe defies the reduced options of his life. There's not an unfelt moment in Cage's performance. Or in the movie.
Fresh: For Nicolas Cage, whose dumb, rant-for-hire projects have lately been making audiences forget how good he can be, Joe is more than a rescue - it's a re-birth.
Fresh: If you've missed Nicolas Cage and the special qualities he brings to movies, "Joe" is a good place to get reacquainted.
Rotten: The plot griddles its right-on themes. Deforestation; social deprivation; child abuse; alcohol abuse . . .  It's a long menu and the food isn't any good.
Saw it this week
It was playing at the Florida Film Festival and it's amazing. Nicolas Cage's career is reborn here. He is award worthy as well as the rest of the cast
An hour too long
So slow, just watch the trailer, it has the whole movie. Definitely decent acting by Cage but not “omg one of his best ever/he’s back”, I don’t understand the critics freaking out. I guess if you go in expecting Wicker Man sure, but it wasn’t anything special. The directing ruins all the good acting anyway.
Great performance from Nic Cage, and most definitely his best film since Bad Lieutenant. The storyline itself is gripping and keeps you interested till the very end. A must see for any fan of Nic Cage or thriller/drama films with a twist. A must see!
