Jeff Nichols’ atmospheric and enigmatic road movie tells the story of a young boy with very special powers and his parents’ desperate attempts to return him to his home, all the while being pursued by both a cult and the FBI. Adam Driver stands out as a helpful young scientist.

Jeff Nichols’ Midnight Special is a crafted progression from such beloved 1970s dramas as Close Encounters. Low-key, intense, and very, very secretive, it should be just as loved by similar audiences today.
