Win Run-Of-Engagement Passes To GOD’S POCKET In St. Louis – Stars Philip Seymour Hoffman

By  |  26 Comments


When Mickey’s crazy stepson Leon is killed in a construction ‘accident’, nobody in the working class neighborhood of God’s Pocket is sorry he’s gone. Mickey tries to bury the bad news with the body, but when the boy’s mother demands the truth, Mickey finds himself stuck in a life and death struggle between a body he can’t bury, a wife he can’t please and a debt he can’t pay.

The film stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Christina Hendricks, Richard Jenkins and John Turturro.

Acclaimed actor John Slattery makes an impressive jump behind the camera with an assured directorial debut that shows he has a razor-sharp eye for conveying the absurdity, cruelty, desperation, and tragic optimism of the people he portrays. Like life, his scenes seamlessly fuse humor and heartbreak, but it’s Slattery’s wit and confident style that make the portrait so authentic. Featuring a top-shelf cast and impeccable cinematography, GOD’S POCKET oozes with talent and marks the emergence of an inspired directorial presence.

With a screenplay by John Slattery and Alex Metcalf, GOD’S POCKET is based on the novel God’s Pocket by Pete Dexter.

The film opens in St. Louis on Friday, May 16.

The Run-Of-Engagement Passes are Admit Two (2). Good in the St. Louis Area.


No purchase necessary.
