Shotgun Stories
September 28th- 7:00 and 9:30- 92 minutes
Dir. Jeff Nichols- USA 2008

Son, Boy and Kid Hayes are three brothers who are forced, after the death of their father, to come to terms with their difficult upbringing. Set in rural and desolate Arkansas, the film explores the relationship between the Hayes family while tracking the transformation of Son, Boy and Kid’s father from an abusive patriarch to an enlightened practitioner of the Christian faith, and documenting the struggles of each boy in his formative years. “The film is a here-and-now American potboiler and a stripped-down parable that can be appreciated by any culture.” (Matt Zoller Seitz, New York Times)
