Joe is one Nicolas Cage movie that I actually wouldn't mind seeing. It seriously looks like it's going to be a great film, and this is coming from a guy who doesn't care for Cage. It looks like he actually give a solid performance though. The movie was directed by David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express, Your Highness, The Sitter, Prince Avalanche), and it's based on the Larry Brown novel of the same name. Here's the synopsis,
In the dirty unruly world of small-town Texas, ex-convict Joe Ransom (Cage) has tried to put his dark past behind him and to live a simple life. He works for a lumber company by day, drinks by night. But when 15-year-old Gary (Tye Sheridan) - a kid trying to support his family - comes to town, desperate for work, Joe has found a way to atone for his sins - to finally be someone’s hero. As Joe tries to protect Gary, the pair will take the twisting road to redemption in the hope for a better life in this tough, hard-hitting but incredibly moving story.
The movie is set to be released on April 11th, 2014.
