IMPAwards have gotten themselves a new Turkish poster for the Robert DeNiro and Ed Norton starrer Stone. It’s the first chance we’ve had to see the central duo, and co-star Milla Jovavich, fully displayed on the poster. Although I still prefer the original.
DeNiro plays Jack Mabry, a prison psychologist marriaged to long-suffering wife Madylyn (Frances Conroy), who is only one case away from retirement. His last case, Gerald Creeson, or “Stone” as he prefers to be called, a convicted arsonist, who completely blanks Mabry’s attempts to gain insight into his past.
With strong characters, great actors and a steady hand behind the camera in The Painted Veil director John Curran, this should be pretty good.
The movie is out October 8th in the US, with no Irish release date set a yet.
As parole officer Jack Mabry (De Niro) counts the days toward a quiet retirement, he is asked to review the case of Gerald “Stone” Creeson (Norton), in prison for covering up the murder of his grandparents with a fire. Now eligible for early release, Stone needs to convince Jack he has reformed, but his attempts to influence the older man’s decision have profound and unexpected effects on them both.
Set against the quiet desperation of an economically ravaged community and the stifling brutality of a maximum security prison, this tale of passion, betrayal and corruption examines the fractured lives of two volatile men breaking from their troubled pasts to face uncertain futures.
