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. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Apr 11, 2014

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. – Bob Mondello, NPR, Apr 11, 2014

Fresh: If you've missed Nicolas Cage and the special qualities he brings to movies, "Joe" is a good place to get reacquainted. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Apr 10, 2014

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. – Nigel Andrews, Financial Times, Jul 24, 2014

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!
