Tribeca film has released the Starred Up trailer and poster. The drama centers on Eric (Jack O’Connell), a 19-year-old who has been in the prison system most of his life, but is now incarcerated in a penitentiary for adults. Once inside, he must confront his violent tendencies and a renewed relationship with his estranged father (Ben Menedelsohn). I really liked the film when I saw it at TIFF, and this trailer does a good job of highlighting O’Connell’s excellent performance without giving away too much of the plot. This is definitely an indie to keep on your radar when it’s released next month.
Hit the jump to check out the Starred Up trailer and poster. The film hits iTunes on August 26th and will be released in theaters on August 29th. Starred Up also stars Rupert Friend.
