Ain’t Them Bodies Saints

Please Note: This film is no longer showing at Railroad Square Cinema

“Visually ravishing, tonally com-manding and built around magnetic performances by Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck as Bonnie-and-Clyde doomed lovers, AIN’T THEM BODIES SAINTS is a tragic but not despairing tale of fatal romance set in the Texas hill country in the mid-1970s. It marks the arrival of an immense talent who will be new to most moviegoers—although director David Lowery is a well-known figure in the indie-film world—and it’s surely one of the best American films of the year”—Andrew O’Hehir, Salon. Poetic, powerful, beautifully acted and anchored in terrific, understated performances by Oscar nominees Mara and Affleck, Ben Foster and MIFF 2013 Midlife Achievement Award winner Keith Carradine, in one of his finest recent turns. Unrated. 105 Min.
