Based on the novel by Larry Brown, the independent film tells the story of ex-con Joe (Cage), who’s trying to lead a normal life and stay out of trouble. But when he meets a troubled homeless 15-year-old boy (Tye Sheridan, Mud) who’s trying to escape his violent father, Joe is faced with redemption or ruin.
The R-rated movie earned high acclaim from critics and moviegoers alike, garnering 82% approval, according to Rotten Tomatoes. Joe had a limited release in theaters, so the DVD and Blu-ray takes it to the biggest audience.
Both the Blu-ray and DVD carry these special features:
- making-of featurette
- featurette “The Long Gravel Drive: The Origins of Joe“
- deleted scenes
- audio commentary with director David Gordon Green (The Sitter), composer David Wingo (Take Shelter) and newcomer actor Brian D. Mays, who plays Joe when he was young.
