Check out this guy named Joe

Nicolas Cage has returned with a stunning dramatic performance as the title character in director David Gordon Green’s new movie Joe.

JoeWe haven’t seen Nicolas Cage in a role like this for some time. As the title character in director David Gordon Green’s new drama Joe, he gives what many have been calling ‘one of his best performances’. He’s an ex-con struggling with life outside of prison who meets a young boy Gary, played by the breakout star of last year’s Mud, Tye Sheridan and tries to help him escape from an increasingly violent family situation.

It also seems like a return for director Gordon Green who’s debut film, the beautifully told drama George Washington, made such a splash on the independent circuit back in 2000 but who’s since worked more on comedies like The Sitter, Your Highness and Pineapple Express. He seemed to be veering back towards more serious stories though most recently, with the well received Prince Avalanche. We’ll see what he does next after Joe and in the meantime, have a look at the superb trailer on the movie’s official website:
