John Connor [Celluloid 07.15.15] thriller



From The Office to Super to, now, The Boy Rainn Wilson has sure shown he's gone range. Here he plays the father of the titular "boy" in the new psychological thriller produced by Elijah Wood’s Spectrevision.

The film, based on Clay McLeod Chapman’s novel “Miss Corpus," hits select theaters and VOD on August 18th.


Synopsis:
It’s the summer of 1989. Nine-year-old Ted Henley (Jared Breeze) and his father John (David Morse) are the proprietors of The Mtn. Vista Motel, a crumbling resort buried in the mountains of the American West. Since Ted’s mother left, John has drifted into despondency—becoming a living ghost, haunting the motel—leaving Ted to fend for himself. In this isolation, unchecked by the bounds of parenting, Ted’s darker impulses begin to manifest.

The arrival of a mysterious drifter, William Colby (Rainn Wilson), captivates young Ted and the two form a unique friendship – setting the stage for Ted’s final, unnerving metamorphosis. The Boy is a chilling, intimate portrait of a 9-year-old sociopath’s growing fascination with death.



The film also stars Jared Breeze, David Morse, Mike Vogel, Bill Sage, and Zuleikha Robinson. It was co-written and directed by Craig William Macneill and McLeod Chapman.
