“David Lowery’s Ain’t Them Bodies Saints landed with the excitement of a bold new voice, and yet, there’s also something undeniably old-fashioned in his approach, suggesting a lost artifact freshly unearthed from the 1970s.” Peter Debruge, Variety. Set against the backdrop of 1970s Texas Hill Country, Ain’t Them Bodies Saints is a romantic American story that follows three characters on various sides of the law—an outlaw (Casey Affleck), his wife (Rooney Mara), and a local sheriff (Ben Foster), who gets caught in their crosshairs.
