Ain’t Them Bodies Saints
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 extends the Bonnie and Clyde tradition with its breathtaking meditation on the fragility and transience of love and was one of the most acclaimed films at Sundance and Cannes earlier this year.
The gritty landscape of 1970s Texas Hill Country is the backdrop for this mood-drenched collision of love and crime that The Hollywood Reporter calls, “A beautiful, densely textured elegy for outlaw lovers.” AIN’T THEM BODIES SAINTS is brought to life with exquisite detail and rich cinematography by Bradford Young, who won the Sundance Film Festival’s US Dramatic Cinematography Award for his effort.
