Midnight Special

An intimately human sci-fi thriller, Midnight Special follows a father (Shannon) who goes on the run to protect his son and uncover the truth behind his special powers. What starts as a race from religious extremists and local law enforcement quickly escalates to a nationwide manhunt involving the highest levels of the Federal Government. Director Jeff Nichols (Mud, Take Shelter) is one of the brightest lights in contemporary American cinema and here delivers perhaps his most impressive and unexpected offering yet.
