Midnight Special

I’ve been waiting quite a while for a good science fiction film to come along.

Midnight Special seems to be one of those. The advance reviews have been very good (to excellent) and it’s about to take off here in Germany (next Thursday). It’s supposed to be somewhat old-fashioned at heart and stars Michael Shannon, Joel Edgerton, Kirsten Dunst, Adam Driver, Jaeden Lieberher and Sam Shepard.

Jeff Nichols, whose two prior films (“Mud,” “Take Shelter”) I really liked, directed the film from his own screenplay.

Looking forward to it.
