David Lowery’s lens-flared Texas drawl of a film Ain’t Them Bodies Saints sounds as delicious rolling off the tongue as looks unfolding moment by moment in front of your eyes. As one of the most anticipated films to come out of Sundance this year, the slow-burning crime drama has the well-crafted filmmaking, beauty, and intrigue to engage any audience and with its wonderfully-acted performances from Casey Affleck, Rooney Mara, and Ben Foster, this one is sure to set Lowery on a track of his own.
So although the film won’t be heading to theaters until late August, those at Cannes will be getting a peak at the feature this week—and now, you can too. Here, we see the opening scene from Ain’t Them Bodies with Mara and Affleck looking beautiful and arguing. It’s a great establishing scene that gives weight to the more explosive moments that follow. Enjoy.
