I’ve always been fascinated how the law minds it’s own business when dealing with the people who live in the mountains of Kentucky and Missouri. The law that you and I obey by does not have pull to these people. They follow a set of laws that are straight out of the Bible, “You steal, we take your hand. You screw me out of money, we take your life,” and that’s just how it is.
This is why I’m excited for the new movie, Out of the Furnace, directed by Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart). It also helps that it stars Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Forest Whitaker, Zoe Saldana, Sam Shepard and Willem Dafoe.
Out of the Furnace has a limited theatrical release November 27th and will expand December 6th.
