After seeing "Ain't Them Bodies Saints" earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, we said in our review that it's "a wholly engrossing and impressive piece of work that the movie world will be talking about all year long." Indeed, the chatter around the well-received film is likely to continue as it heads to the south of France next week to screen for international audiences and critics. And today we have some exclusive images from the movie, which is one of our 15 Most Anticipated Indie Films Of The Summer.

Rooney Mara, Ain't Them Bodies Saints

After seeing "Ain't Them Bodies Saints" earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, we said in our review that it's "a wholly engrossing and impressive piece of work that the movie world will be talking about all year long." Indeed, the chatter around the well-received film is likely to continue as it heads to the south of France next week to screen for international audiences and critics. And today we have some exclusive images from the movie, which is one of our 15 Most Anticipated Indie Films Of The Summer.

Featuring a stellar cast including Casey Affleck, Rooney Mara, Ben Foster, Keith Carradine and Nate Parker, the story follows an outlaw who escapes from prison to reunite with his wife and the daughter he's never met. And that's just part of the film, which we called "a searing, romantic crime drama and love story." As these images suggest, it's not only a great story, but it's beautifully lensed as well. Here's the film's new synopsis.

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, first time director David Lowery paints a poetic picture, evoking the mythology of westerns and saturating the dramatic space with an aching sense of loss. Featuring powerful performances by Affleck and Mara as well as Ben Foster and Keith Carradine, AIN'T THEM BODIES SAINTS is a story of love, motherhood and searching for peace while faced with an unrelenting past. 

Produced by Toby Halbrooks, James M. Johnston, Jay Van Hoy, Lars Knudsen, Amy Kaufman and Cassian Elwes, "Ain't Them Bodies Saints" will arrive in theaters via IFC Films on August 16th. It will play as part of the Critics' Week section at Cannes and also hits BAMcinemaFest in New York City in June.
