Love develops in all kinds of places and situations if its meant to be it will happen no matter the outcome. David Lowery's Ain't Them Bodies Saints an award winning hit at this years Sundance Film Festival (Grand Jury Prize winner) seems to be making similar noise at Cannes Film Festival and now we can admire the beauty of it's first trailer.

Set in the 1970's starring Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara as Bob Muldoon &Ruth Guthrie a young impoverished couple ho are caught up in a shootout with local police. A Policeman ends up wounded and Bob takes the blame who is then sent to jail leaving Ruth on her own to raise their soon to be daughter on her own. Four years own Bob escapes prison in a search for Ruth however during this time she has grown closer to Patrick Wheeler (Ben Foster) with an unexpected reunion destined to be an unhappy one.

Once again you get a feel of Terence Malick (Badlands era) especially in the cinematography, it's stylish, engrossing stuff which looks to intertwine between the intense manhunt and the drama between Bob, Ruth. David Lowery is been tipped for big things in film and Ain't Them Bodies Saints looks the near perfect introduction for the director who is hoping remake Pete's Dragon as well Graphic Novel movie adaptation of Torso. If going by the buzz this film is making Lowery should achieve those projects and become a big name in film for years to come.

Ain't them Bodies Saints boasts a fantastic support in the shape of Keith Carradine, Rami Malek and Nate Parker, the film has no confirmed UK&Irish release date but will be out out in USA 16th August.


Bob Muldoon (Casey Affleck) and Ruth Guthrie (Rooney Mara), an impassioned young outlaw couple on an extended crime spree, are finally apprehended by lawmen after a shootout in the Texas hills. Although Ruth wounds a local officer, Bob takes the blame. But four years later, Bob escapes from prison and sets out to find Ruth and their daughter, born during his incarceration. Set against the backdrop of 1970's Texas Hill Country, director David Lowery paints a poetic picture, evoking the mythology of westerns and saturating the dramatic space with an aching sense of loss. Featuring powerful performances by Affleck, Mara as well as Ben Foster and Keith Carradine, AIN'T THEM BODIES SAINTS is a story of love, motherhood, and searching for peace while faced with an unrelenting past.
