The James Franco-directed adaptation of the novel by Cormac McCarthy (No Country For Old Men, The Road) stars Scott Haze as Lester Ballard, a dispossessed, violent man living in a small Tennessee town in the Appalachian Mountains in the 1960s. Deprived of parents and housing and filled with loneliness and despair, Ballard falls deeper into crime and degradation. Franco also stars in, co-wrote and produced the pic. Well Go USA Entertainment releases Child Of God on August 1. Check out the latest trailer:
