David Gordon Green‘s Joe was one of my favorite films at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival, and now the first trailer has gone online. The story is about the relationship that forms between the troubled titular character (Nicolas Cage) and an abused teenager (Tye Sheridan). That’s the brief logline, but Joe is primarily a character driven piece and all the more rewarding for it. This trailer tries to walk the balance between the tone and the loose narrative, and hits on the darkness and violence permeating the picture. I can’t recommend the movie enough since it’s Green’s best film after George Washington and has one of Cage’s finest performances.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. Joe currently doesn’t have a U.S. release date.
