Philip Seymour Hoffman may no longer be with us, but thankfully he's left a couple completed films to help soften the blow of his tragic loss. Later this year we'll see him in Anton Corbijn's thriller "A Most Wanted Man," but coming first this spring, Hoffman will feature opposite John Turturro in "Mad Men" star John Slattery's drama, "God's Pocket."

God’s Pocket,

Philip Seymour Hoffman may no longer be with us, but thankfully he's left a couple completed films to help soften the blow of his tragic loss. Later this year we'll see him in Anton Corbijn's thriller "A Most Wanted Man," but coming first this spring, Hoffman will feature opposite John Turturro in "Mad Men" star John Slattery's drama, "God's Pocket."

Also featuring Christina Hendricks and based on the novel by Pete Dexter, the film follows Mickey Scarpato, who tries to cover up the death of his stepson in a "construction accident." But when a journalist latches on to the story, Mickey finds things going from bad to worse. The material is promising, but after premiering at the Sundance Film Festival this past January, our man on the ground was less than impressed, calling the effort "a morbid, 1970’s-set bummer of a film that strands its talented cast."

You can see for yourself when "God's Pocket" arrives on May 9th. Watch below.
