Nicholas Cage plays a troubled man (no news there) who befriends a 15-year-old boy (Tye Sheridan) with an abusive father. Before it’s all over, the inevitable unfolds. Cage enjoys the opportunity to be gruff, yet tender and Sheridan is both sweet and sad. The supporting cast is made up of obviously non-pro actors who add to the low-class vibe. The darkness that should creep around the edge of this film tends to overpower it too early and too obviously. Director David Gordon Green (“Pineapple Express”) can be greatly blamed for the oppressive and mean spirit of this predictable endeavor. (Criterion Ciinema only)

 

2.5 out of 5 stars (2.5 / 5)
