Nicolas Cage delivers his best, most nuanced performance in recent years in this gritty and moving tale set in rural Mississippi.

Cage is Joe, a no-nonsense supervisor of a crew of lumberjacks who finds work for Gary (Mud’s Tye Sheridan), a troubled teenager from the outskirts of town. As Joe takes him under his wing, he discovers that Gary lives with his family in an abandoned house under the tyranny of a drunk and abusive father (a stunning performance by Gary Poulter). Joe soon finds himself torn between his fierce protective instincts and his need to avoid the violence of his past.

“There’s not an unfelt moment in Cage’s performance. Or in the movie.” ★★★★ Rolling Stone
