A gripping mix of friendship, violence and redemption erupts in the contemporary backwoods of the South in this adaptation of Larry Brown's novel, celebrated at once for its grit and its deeply moving core.

Directed by David Gordon Green, the film brings Oscar-winner 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 kid (Tye Sheridan, Tree of Life, Mud) who awakens in him a fierce and tender-hearted protector.

Out from 25 July in cinemas and on demand across the UK and Ireland.
