Based on the novel by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Cormac McCarthy, this piece of Southern Gothic filmmaking from director James Franco tells the harrowing story of Lester Ballard (Scott Haze), a rural Tennessee man whose steadfast determination to shun society in the early 1960s results in his transformation into an animalistic cave-dweller driven by criminal instinct and self-preservation.
