‘God’s Pocket’ Horse Clip

Philip Seymour Hoffman and Christina Hendricks star in this deliciously twisted comedy directed by Mad Men’s John Slattery. When Mickey’s (Hoffman) crazy stepson Leon is killed in a construction “accident,” nobody in the working class neighborhood of God’s Pocket is sorry he’s gone. Mickey tries to bury the bad news with the body, but when the boy’s mother demands the truth, Mickey finds himself stuck in a life-and-death struggle between a body he can’t bury, a wife he can’t please and a debt he can’t pay. Also stars John Turturro and Richard Jenkins.
