- 116 min
From the critically-acclaimed writer and director of Crazy Heart, Out of the Furnace is a gripping and gritty drama about fate, circumstance, and justice starring OscarA-winner Christian Bale (The Fighter), OscarA-nominated Casey Affleck (The Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford), Zoe Saldana (Avatar), OscarA-nominated Sam Shepard (Safe House), OscarA-nominated Woody Harrelson (The Messenger) and OscarA-winner Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland). In the film, Russell (Bale) and his younger brother Rodney (Affleck) live in the economically-depressed Rust Belt, and have always dreamed of escaping and finding better lives. But when a cruel twist of fate lands Russell in prison, his brother is lured into one of the most violent and ruthless crime rings in the Northeast - a mistake that will almost cost him everything. Once released, Russell must choose between his own freedom, or risk it all to seek justice for his brother. Producing are Appian Way's Leonardo DiCaprio (J. Edgar) and Jennifer Killoran (The Ides of March) alongside Scott Free's Ridley Scott (The Grey), Tony Scott (Man on Fire) and Michael Costigan (American Gangster), as well as Relativity's CEO Ryan Kavanaugh (The Fighter).
