GOD’S POCKET

ON DEMAND & DIGITAL NOW

AVAILABLE TO OWN ON BLU-RAY AND DVD 26th DECEMBER

Arrow Films, the distributors of The Hunt, A Hijacking and Love Is All You Need, are pleased to announce the release of God’s Pocket, available on demand & digital and on Blu-ray & DVD from 26th December 2014.

Based on the novel by award winning author Pete Dexter (The Paperboy, Mulholland Falls), 1970’s set God’s Pocket is a chilling and gritty dark comedy starring Philip Seymour Hoffman and an eclectic ensemble cast including Richard Jenkins (Jack Reacher, The Visitor), Christina Hendricks (Mad Men, Drive), John Turturro (Transformers, Fading Gigolo), Eddie Marsan (Filth, Tyrannosaur) and Caleb Landry Jones (Antiviral, X Men: First Class). Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance Film Festival 2014, GOD’S POCKET marks acclaimed actor John Slattery’s (Mad Men, The Adjustment Bureau) feature film directorial debut.

When Mickey’s (Hoffman) crazy stepson Leon (Landry Jones) is killed in a construction ‘accident’, nobody in the working class neighbourhood 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 (Hendricks) demands the truth, and a local reporter (Jenkins) starts sniffing around, Mickey finds himself stuck in a darkly comedic life and death struggle. A body he can’t bury, a wife he can’t please and a debt he can’t pay.
