'Ain't Them Bodies Saints'

The first trailer for David Lowery's lyrical Western and festival favorite "Ain't Them Bodies Saints" has landed. The film, which hits theaters August 16 and VOD August 23 via IFC Films, stars Casey Affleck, Rooney Mara and Ben Foster in a tale centered on an outlaw's dangerous ordeal to reunite with his wife and child. Watch below.

Check out our TOH! interview with director Lowery, and our review and roundup out of Sundance when the film first premiered. The film had its European unveiling at Cannes earlier this week.

Nate Parker and Keith Carradine co-star. Here's a more detailed 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, 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, 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.
