God's Pocket

At the end of last week, the first trailer for A Most Wanted Man debuted, which sadly turned into one of the two final performances from the late Philip Seymour Hoffman that also debuted at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival (there's also The Hunger Games: Mockingjay coming up). Now the first trailer for God's Pocket has arrived, featuring his other stirring lead performance. The film wasn't one of our favorites from Sundance since it ambitiously goes for a dark comedy vibe akin to Coen Brothers, but stumbles in staying in the right tone. Still, the performances are great and John Slattery shows promise as a director. Watch it!

Here's the first trailer for John Slattery's God's Pocket, originally from Apple:

God's Pocket is directed by John Slattery (series regular and occasional director on "Mad Men"), who also co-wrote the script with Peter Dexter & Alex Metcalf. When Mickey's (Philip Seymour Hoffman) crazy stepson Leon (Caleb Landry Jones) is killed in a construction "accident," nobody in the working class neighborhood of God’s Pocket is sorry he's gone. Mickey tries to bury the bad news with the body, but when the boy's mother (Christina Hendricks) demands the truth, Mickey finds himself stuck in a life-and-death struggle between a body he can’t bury, a wife he can’t please and a debt he can’t pay. John Turturro and Richard Jenkins also star in the film which premiered at Sundance 2014 and IFC Films releases May 9th.
