The film debuted at Sundance back in January and will be released on August 16th. Keep up with the film at Ain’t Them Bodies Saints on Facebook.
Writer/director David Lowery (Deadroom, St. Nick) weaves this poetic drama centered on the journey of a notorious outlaw who breaks out of prison to reunite with his beloved wife, and the daughter he’s never met. Bob Muldoon and Ruth Guthrie were two outlaws on the run when their crime spree came to a sudden end deep in the Texas hills. When the gun smoke cleared following a shootout with police, a local officer lay critically wounded by deadeye Ruth. Determined to save his love from getting thrown behind bars, however, Bob claims responsibility for the shot, and receives a stiff prison sentence. A few years later, when Bob learns that Ruth has given birth to their daughter, he makes a daring escape, and flees to be with them at any cost. [Wiki]
