Every now and then, Nicolas Cage still manages to turn out the odd performance that reminds us he has not yet become a total joke, and when I heard that he was teaming up with David Gordon Green for a movie called Joe, I had a feeling this would be one of those movies. Cage plays an ex-con living in a southern town who takes a 15-year-old from a broken home under his wing. It’s hard not to be reminded of Jeff Nichols’ Mud, especially when the movie also happens to star Tye Sheridan, although Green’s own films Undertow and Snow Angels also seem like obvious comparisons. Those of us who missed the movie at TIFF last year are getting our first look this week courtesy of an an international trailer from the film’s French distributor. Joe hits select theatres in the U.S. on April 11th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
