Win Tickets To An Advance Screening Sundance Hit Ain't Them Bodies Saints
If you think the visuals in this summer's big movies have impressed you, just wait until you get a look at David Lowery's Ain't Them Bodies Saints. Without a single giant robot or skyscraper getting knocked over, Ain't Them Bodies Saints is easily one of the year's most visually impressive movies, crammed with the kind of lush cinematography and Texas locations that made Terrence Malick famous, and which have been brought new life in Lowery's gritty, emotional and heartfelt crime drama. Oscar nominees Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara star as a pair of criminals separated when he is sent to jail, leaving her at home raising their child. The real story happens, though, when he breaks out of jail to try and return to her. After premiering at the Sundance Film Festival in January Ain't Them Bodies Saints is coming to theaters on August 10, but you now have a chance to see it early-- and on the big screen, where it belongs.

Set against the backdrop of 1970's Texas Hill Country, AIN'T THEM BODIES SAINTS is a romantic American story that follows three characters on various sides of the law - outlaw Bob Muldoon (Casey Affleck), his wife Ruth Guthrie (Rooney Mara), and a local sheriff named Patrick Wheeler (Ben Foster), who gets caught in their crosshairs. The film, which is the second feature from writer-director David Lowery, was developed at the Sundance Institute's Writing and Producing Labs and also stars Nate Parker and Keith Carradine. The film received the U.S. Dramatic Cinematography Award at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
