Remember how Christian Bale is a really good actor? Looks like we’re going to be reminded this fall.
First off, a tale of brothers involved with the criminal underworld of an economically depressed town somewhere in the American South? That’s the kind of thing that’ll get you Oscar nods right there if it’s done halfway well, and this is directed by Scott Cooper who probably should have been nominated for best director for Crazy Heart.
Add to that not only CHristian Bale, but Casey Affleck, Forest Whitaker Sam Shepard, Woody Harrelson, Zoe Saldana and Willem Dafoe? That’s a recipe for a great film right there.
Too bad it doesn’t get wide release until December!
