'Friday's Child'

Ah yes, another one of those old, stalwart young-man-on-the-verge-who's-gotta-make-a-choice dramas – only this one has a few extra things to recommend it. For starters, it has Tye Sheridan, the promising actor from The Tree of Life, Mud and the soon-to-be-released Ready Player One, playing the film's conflicted twentysomething who may or may not have committed a crime out of desperation. (Three Billboards/Get Out's Caleb Landry Jones plays his morally dubious, somewhat sleazy buddy, because of course he does!) It also has Imogen Poots and Jeffrey Wright as a love interest and a police detective, respectively, which are always good things. And it's written and directed by A.J. Edwards, a filmmaker who's mastered the Tex-istentialism of his mentor/collaborator Terrence Malick to a tee. We have a good feeling about this one.
