Ain't Them Bodies Saints

"All you have to do is wait for me." Just last week an illustrated teaser poster surfaced for the Sundance selected, slow-burning, western thriller Ain't Them Bodies Saints starring Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and Casey Affleck (Gone Baby Gone). The film won the U.S. Dramatic Cinematography Award, and this writer called the film "a contemporary western with all the right beats, this film is full of authentic drama, and a respect for westerns of the past and present." Now you get a taste of the fantastic film from director David Lowery coming later this summer with this first gorgeous trailer. Watch below!

Here's the first trailer for David Lowery's Ain't Them Bodies Saints, found via The Film Stage:

Set against the backdrop of 1970′s Texas Hill Country, Ain't Them Bodies Saints is a romantic American story that follows three characters on various sides of the law – outlaw Bob Muldoon (Casey Affleck), his wife Ruth Guthrie (Rooney Mara), and a local sheriff named Patrick Wheeler (Ben Foster), who gets caught in their crosshairs. The film marks the second feature from writer and director David Lowery and was developed at the Sundance Institute’s Writing and Producing Labs and also features Nate Parker and Keith Carradine. IFC Films bought the film from Sundance and it hits limited theaters on August 16th. Well?

Wholeheartedly agree. I watched the trailer straight through, got to the end, and realized I hadn't the slightest idea what this is about because I was only paying attention to those beautiful landscapes.

Mara looks skeletal. The film looks good.

This trailer gave me so many emotions. It gave me anxiety, too. I want to know what happens to the them. Does anyone know what song they used for the trailer?
