    Review: Nicolas Cage Returns to His Naturalist Roots in 'Joe,' Directed by David Gordon Green

    David Gordon Green's "Joe" is a sluggish, slow-burn drama set in poverty-mired Mississippi about the bond that gradually builds between a drifter boy ("Mud"'s Tye Sheridan) and a simmering ex-con (Nicolas Cage). While both Cage and Sheridan are very watchable, especially in the scenes they share tog...

    David Gordon Green Talks ‘Joe’ & Reveals How He Convinced Nicolas Cage To Star In His Dark, Tiny Indie Drama

    Review: David Gordon Green's Muscular & Textured 'Joe' Starring Nicolas Cage & Tye Sheridan

    “Joe” unites a pair of talents somewhat on the comeback trail.
