Out of the Furnace stars Christian Bale, Woody Harrelson, Casey Affleck, Willem Dafoe, Sam Shepard, Zoe Saldana, and Forest Whitaker. That is one hell of a cast and, judging by the trailer, this is going to be a powerful film.
The film is a drama about fate, circumstance, and redemption. Russell and his younger brother live in the economically depressed Rust Belt, and have always dreamed of escaping and finding better lives. But when a cruel twist of fate lands Russell in prison, his brother is lured into one of the most violent and ruthless crime rings in the Northeast – a mistake that will almost cost him everything. Once released, Russell must choose between his own freedom, or risk it all to seek justice for his brother.
Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart) directs.
