IFC Films has released a trailer for director David Lowery's latest project, Ain't Them Bodies Saints (2013), starring Rooney Mara, Ben Foster, Casey Affleck, and Keith Carradine. The film, which had its U.S. premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, is set to arrive in theaters across the nation on August 16th.
Official synopsis: Bob Muldoon (Affleck) and Ruth Guthrie (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.
