A gripping and gritty drama about family, fate, circumstance, and justice. Russell Baze (Christian Bale) has a rough life: he works a dead-end blue collar job at the local steel mill by day, and cares for his terminally ill father by night. When Russell’s brother Rodney (Casey Affleck) returns home from serving time in Iraq, he gets lured into one of the most ruthless crime rings in the Northeast and mysteriously disappears. The police fail to crack the case, so – with nothing left to lose – Russell takes matters into his own hands, putting his life on the line to seek justice for his brother.

This movie looks a little dark, but a whole lotta good! I’m hoping to catch it on the big screen. Judging from the trailer, it looks like a good movie to with my husband. One we can discuss over dinner.
How about you? Any thoughts after watching the Out of the Furnace trailer?
