(Nicholas Cage)

Nicolas Cage and Tye Sheridan star in Joe which can be seen tomorrow (April 4) at 20h30 on the M-Net Movies Premiere DStv Channel 103.

Directed in 2013 by David Gordon Green, the drama is a heart-rending story of a boy who strives against all odds to bring his brutal, abusive father onto the straight and narrow. Oscar winner Nicholas Cage stars as a loner who teaches the boy everything he needs to know about loyalty and honour.

Fifteen-year-old Gary is often brutally beaten by his father, and when he lands a job with Joe, a decent man with good values, his father nearly ruins his chance of creating a better life for himself. Gary forgives easily – until his father commits an unspeakable misdeed... and Gary vows to kill him. Rating:16VSL
