Screen Play: Sundance 2013 “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints”
The Gist: A shootout in the Texas hills separates a pregnant Bonnie from her Clyde.
The Stars: Rooney Mara, Casey Affleck, Ben Foster, Nate Parker, and Keith Carradine.
The Buzz: Ben Foster kills it. Though he plays a subdued supporting character, the Boston-born/Iowa-bred actor may have just found his breakout role (well, if you don’t count The Messenger. Or Rampart. Or Here.). It’s also a huge U.S. Dramatic debut for Texas filmmaker David Lowery, as audiences (press included) are applauding as the closing credits roll.
