Coarse language and mature themes
|Director:||Tommy Lee Jones|
|Actors:||Samuel L. Jackson, Tommy Lee Jones|
From Cormac McCarthy, author of No Country for Old Men and The Road, comes this searing two character drama about the choice people frequently make; to go on or give in to despair. Set in a New York tenement apartment, the story focuses on two very different men, a black ex-con (Samuel L. Jackson) who claims to hear the voice of Jesus, and the white professor (Academy Award winner Tommy Lee Jones) he stopped from throwing himself in front of an oncoming train, The Sunset Limited.
What follows is a philosophical debate with incredibly high stakes – can Black convince White that life is worth living, that once he goes out that door he should not head for a return date with the Sunset Limited? Souls are bared and secrets shared, with Black’s faith increasingly challenged by White’s bleak but meticulously reasoned view of a world gone wrong. The conflict reaches a shattering conclusion that will leave you thinking well after the final frame.
