USA, 2014, 88 Minute Running Time
The pitch black dramatic comedy God's Pocket stars Philip Seymour Hoffman (The Master, Doubt, Capote) as a low-level criminal named Mickey. When his crazy stepson is killed in a construction "accident," nobody in the gritty, 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 (Christina Hendricks, "Mad Men") 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. John Turturro (Fading Gigolo) and Richard Jenkins (The Visitor) co-star. God's Pocket marks the feature debut of writer/director John Slattery (Roger Sterling on "Mad Men").
