IFC has unveiled another fantastic poster for David Lowery‘s crime drama Ain’t Them Bodies Saints starring Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck. The film received a lot of praise when it premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival. It doesn’t arrive into theaters until August, but it’s already been generating buzz and, not surprisingly, comparisons to Terrence Malick‘s 1973 film Badlands (which isn’t a bad thing). Check out the poster below.
Bob Muldoon (Casey Affleck) and Ruth Guthrie (Rooney Mara), an impassioned young outlaw couple on an extended crime spree, are finally apprehended by lawmen after a shootout in the Texas hills. Although Ruth wounds a local officer, Bob takes the blame. But four years later, Bob escapes from prison and sets out to find Ruth and their daughter, born during his incarceration.
Set against the backdrop of 1970′s Texas Hill Country, director David Lowery paints a poetic picture, evoking the mythology of westerns and saturating the dramatic space with an aching sense of loss. Ain’t Them Bodies Saints is a story of love, motherhood and searching for peace while faced with an unrelenting past.
IFC will be releasing Ain’t Them Bodies Saints in theaters on August 16th and VOD on August 23rd. The film co-stars Ben Foster, Keith Carradine, and Nate Parker. What do you think of the new poster?
