Midnight Special is a new movie from Jeff Nichols (director of Mud). Following is a synopsis:
A father (Michael Shannon) goes on the run to protect his young son, Alton (Jaeden Lieberher), and uncover the truth behind the boy’s special powers. What starts as a race from religious extremists and local law enforcement quickly escalates to a nationwide manhunt involving the highest levels of the Federal Government. Ultimately his father risks everything to protect Alton and help fulfill a destiny that could change the world forever.
It opens in select markets tomorrow, March 18th, and goes into wide release beginning April 1st. It sounds to be very much a character-driven sci-fi flick (in the vein of Inception), exploring the nature of life, love, and faith. It’s sitting currently at a very respectable 84% on Rotten Tomatoes. With a score that high, who wouldn’t want to see it?
That’s where you come in!
