Ain’t Them Bodies Saints

Ain’t Them Bodies Saints Release Date: August 16, 2013

Bob Muldoon (Casey Affleck) and Ruth Guthrie (Rooney Mara), an impassioned young outlaw couple on an extended crime spree, are finally apprehended by lawmen after a shootout in the Texas hills.

Although Ruth wounds a local officer, Bob takes the blame. But four years later, Bob escapes from prison and sets out to find Ruth and their daughter, born during his incarceration. Set against the backdrop of 1970’s Texas Hill Country, director David Lowery paints a poetic picture, evoking the mythology of westerns and saturating the dramatic space with an aching sense of loss.

Rooney Mara was nominated for the Best Actress Oscar for the American version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

Casey Affleck is the younger, unpopular brother of Oscar winner Ben Affleck.
