Midnight Special


Midnight Special

Director: Jeff Nichols

Starring: Michael Shannon, Kirsten Dunst, Adam Driver…

Grade: A

A young boy has gone missing. Seemingly kidnapped by his own father (Shannon) and his father’s boyhood friend (Joel Edgerton) we quickly come to learn that it’s not just the police looking for this boy but members of the cult like ranch where he grew up and the government.

I missed this in theaters but was very much looking forward to it. The other night when I rented it was pretty late so I thought I’d watch the beginning and then finish the rest the next day and I wound up watching it straight through and being completely intrigued and entertained.
