William Friedkin’s return to form was the first collaboration between him and playwright Tracey Letts for this intense tale of obsession and psychosis. Ashley Judd stars as a waitress living in a rundown motel in Oklahoma, unable to move on from the disappearance of her son years ago and living in the threat of her ex-con husband. She is introduced to recently discharged soldier, Peter (Michael Shannon) and they begin a relationship slowly isolating themselves from the world. Featuring two incredibly intense central performances from Judd and Shannon.
