Brought to life with exquisite detail and rich cinematography by Bradford Young (winner of the US Dramatic Cinematography Award at Sundance), the gritty landscape of 1970s Texas Hill Country is the backdrop for this mood-drenched collision of love and crime. After his pregnant wife (Rooney Mara) makes one false move during a bloody shootout, a bank robber (Casey Affleck) faces a 25-year sentence that destroys his dreams of a family life. Shot through with the yearning and melancholy of a folk ballad, David Lowery’s directorial breakthrough—one of the most acclaimed films at Sundance and a special Critics’ Week selection at Cannes—extends the Bonnie and Clyde tradition with its breathtaking meditation on the fragility and transience of love.

Beautifully shot. The acting was notable. Wonderful beginning. Unresolved ending.
Nothing to say, turned off after ten wasted minutes. It's a Hollywood wannabe film crap.
Beautiful beginning, beautiful end, and everything in between was just okay.
A character driven, well written, beautifully shot film. Storybook love confronted with reality. Every role nailed to the point you could watch with out dialogue and know exactly what is happening. I can't recommend this movie enough.
Great movie. Casey Afleck continues to garner my attention as a very good actor. And Rooney Mara is superb. The movie is beautifully written, shot, and directed.
I thoroughly enjoyed this film. The acting was excellent, the story well told.
