105 min. min
Opening Night

As parole officer Jack Mabry (Oscar® winner Robert De Niro) counts the days toward a quiet retirement, he is asked to review the case of Gerald “Stone” Creeson (Oscar® nominee Edward  Norton), in prison for covering up the murder of his grandparents with a fire. Now eligible for early release, Stone needs to convince Jack he has reformed, but his attempts to influence the older man’s decision have profound and unexpected consequences for them both. Stone skillfully weaves together the parallel journeys of two men grappling with dark impulses as the line between lawman and lawbreaker becomes precariously thin. Golden Globe® winner Frances Conroy also stars as Madylyn, Jack’s devout, long-suffering spouse, while Milla Jovovich delivers a startlingly raw, breakout performance as the sexy, casually amoral woman both men desire.
