Full film details

When Roy discovers that his eight-year-old son, Alton, possesses extraordinary powers, he faces a race against time to get him to a safe and top secret location. However, Roy isn’t the only one recently in the know about his son’s unique gifts.

An extreme religious sect is also aware of Alton, believing him to be of high importance to their beliefs and will stop at nothing to seek him out.

But there’s also a meticulous government task force who are also hot on the trail of Roy and Alton, who have their own reasons for capturing the boy.

Desperate to protect his son, Roy must do everything he can to keep himself and Alton one step ahead of their assailants.

Writer-director Jeff Nichols (Mud) brings this thrilling sci-fi chase film to the silver-screen – his fourth feature film. A whole host of famous faces make up the cast, including: Michael Shannon (Boardwalk Empire, Man of Steel) as Roy, Sam Shepherd (Cold in July, August: Osage County) as the leader of the extreme religious group, Adam Driver (Girls, Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens) as the man heading up the government task force along with Kirsten Dunst (Fargo, The Two Faces of January) and Joel Edgerton (Black Mass, The Gift).
