MIDNIGHT SPECIAL – this cryptic sci-fi adventure from writer/director Jeff Nichols, Roy (Michael Shannon) rescues his son Alton (Jaeden Lieberher) from a religious cult in Texas, whose members worship the boy for his supernatural powers. Along with a state trooper (Joel Edgerton), the pair go on a cross-country journey as they are hunted by federal agents, who believe Alton might be a threat to national security.
Q-TIPS SAY: Liked MIDNIGHT SPECIAL. Could the little guy really be from another planet with supernatural powers? Good movie – love Michael Shannon. It is a slow moving movie and one can think of it as basically a chase type movie – but it is much more. See it, at the movies or as a rental – think you will like it.
