The Quarry is a crime / thriller about a drifter (Shea Whigham) who kills a traveling preacher and takes his place at a small-town church. Unfortunately for him, the local police chief (Michael Shannon) suspects foul play.
Directed by Scott Teems; Catalina Sandino Moreno, Bobby Soto and Bruno Bichirare among the key cast.
What on earth was the drifter thinking and how much research did he carry out in order to even think his plan would work? I’ll be watching to get an answer to these questions and for Michael Shannon’s performance.
Alvaro Martinez, Jimmy Gonzales, Abel Becerra, Anthony Reynolds, Rose Bianco, Julia Vera, David Jensen and Giovanni Cohea also star.
Lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) works in a hidden high-security government laboratory and is trapped in a life of silence and isolation. Her life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment.
Also starring Michael Shannon, Michael Stuhlbarg and Doug Jones, The Shape Of Water is an other-worldly fairy tale set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1963…
Director Guillermo del Toro is all the reason I need to watch this one but I’ll add the cast and the intriguing ‘secret experiment’ to the list.
For some reason, when I read the words ‘high-security government laboratory’ and ‘secret classified experiment,’ Captain America – The First Avenger (2011) came to mind. Anyone else? Just me? Ok.
