Performers, Cast and Crew:
Rolling Stone - 05/23/2013
"[A] lyrical spellbinder about a love triangle out of balance."
Los Angeles Times - 08/15/2013
"[A] wistful and wayward drama about an outlaw couple who will get under your skin and work on your heart if you're not careful."
Wall Street Journal - 08/15/2013
"It's a tone poem...exploring themes of love and commitment through understated performances, sumptuous images, lovely music and very few words, intoned elegiacally."
New York Times - 08/16/2013
"This is a landscape of archetypes, where individual stories take on a mythic, even metaphysical resonance."
Washington Post - 08/23/2013
4 stars out of 4 -- "[A] moody, achingly emotional murder ballad of a movie, a plumb-crazy romance played out against the timeless backdrop of the American West..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 08/22/2013
"Lowery's visual style is spare and beautiful, yet filled with a subtle tension."
Total Film - 08/30/2013
4 stars out of 5 -- "Holding the centre, Affleck brings welcome warmth to Bob while Mara pines in perfect profile, making magnetic work out of Ruth's restrained yearning."
Empire - 08/28/2013
3 stars out of 5 -- "The moments between the moments are the director's goal. He creates a film afloat on mood..."
Writer/director David Lowery (ST. NICK) weaves this poetic drama centered on the journey of a notorious outlaw who breaks out of prison to reunite with his beloved wife and the daughter he's never met. Bob Muldoon and Ruth Guthrie were two outlaws on the run when their crime spree came to a sudden end deep in the Texas hills. When the gunsmoke cleared following a shootout with police, a local officer lay critically wounded by deadeye Ruth. Determined to save his love from getting thrown behind bars, however, Bob claims responsibility for the shot, and receives a stiff prison sentence. A few years later, when Bob learns that Ruth has given birth to their daughter, he makes a daring escape, and flees to be with them at any cost. Rooney Mara, Casey Affleck, and Ben Foster co-star.
