“From Scott Cooper, the critically-acclaimed writer and director of Crazy Heart, comes a gripping and gritty drama about family, fate, circumstance, and justice. Russell Baze (Christian Bale) has a rough life: he works a dead-end blue collar job at the local steel mill by day, and cares for his terminally ill father by night. When Russell’s brother Rodney (Casey Affleck) returns home from serving time in Iraq, he gets lured into one of the most ruthless crime rings in the Northeast and mysteriously disappears. The police fail to crack the case, so – with nothing left to lose – Russell takes matters into his own hands, putting his life on the line to seek justice for his brother.”
God, that trailer was intense!
There’s also a new poster:
Sometimes your battles choose you.
By the way if you’re wondering about that lovely whispery song you heard in the trailer, it’s a cover of Neil Young’s song “Heart of Gold”. No idea who’s doing the cover though… Maybe you know?
The film will open in theaters on December 6, 2013.
