In the Radiant City Trailer

"There's no such thing as evil, son. There's just people doing good and bad to each other." The Orchard has debuted a trailer for indie drama In the Radiant City, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year. The film is the feature directorial debut of Kentucky native Rachel Lambert, and it's set in Kentucky, about a man who returns home only to find his family is still haunted by the stigma of a murder his brother committed years ago. The cast includes Michael Abbott Jr in the lead role, along with Marin Ireland, Madisen Beaty, Celia Weston, Jon Michael Hill, Deirdre O'Connell, and Paul Sparks. This film is produced by fellow filmmaker Jeff Nichols, and it also has one of the best posters this year (as seen below).

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Rachel Lambert's In the Radiant City, direct from YouTube:

This will be a good watch, of course. But I don't understand why so many solid dramas have to be related to violence and killing..? There's much more to life ...

That is a cool poster! Looks like some intense drama and solid cinematography. Might catch this on Netflix/cable.

Damn impressive. These tight knit family dramas are so good. They remind me of a Steinbeck or Faulkner story. This looks like it has potential to be as good as WINTER'S BONE.
