100 Word Review – Midnight Special (2016)

Midnight Special

There is something strange about Alton (Jaeden Lieberher). The Ranch think he’s their saviour, the FBI think he’s a weapon. His father, Roy (Michael Shannon) just wants to protect him.

Written and directed by Jeff Nichols (Mud, Take Shelter), this is a dramatic yet realistic Sci Fi that will have you asking more questions than it answers in the best possible way. Co-starring Kirsten Dunst (the only woman with more than two lines in the whole film!), Joel Edgerton and the always wonderful Adam Driver (pictured below), the acting is strong held together by a stella performance from young Lieberher.
