Director: Jeff Nichols

Starring: Joel Edgerton, Ruth Negga, Michael Shannon

Release: November 4th, 2016

And I thought I’d seen Oscar-contending trailers before.  This one might have just blown them all out of the water.  The subject matter speaks for itself and will make a much better film that Free State of Jones did with a similar tone set in a different time.  Then there’s Jeff Nichols, who is a certifiable genius.  Shotgun Stories, Take Shelter, Mud, Midnight Special; he knows how to craft an undeniable film.  Add in Edgerton & Shannon, two current powerhouses, and you’ve got a movie that could take multiple categories.
