Child of God Synopsis

James Franco’s faithful adaptation of the 1973 Cormac McCarthy novel follows Lester Ballard (Scott Haze) on a harrowing descent from Tennessee loner to serial killer in the 1960s. Aided by strong performances from Tim Blake Nelson and Franco himself, Haze’s without-a-net portrayal of the primitive sociopath will keep your eyes glued to the screen even as his character’s depravity tempts you to turn away.
