Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart) directs the family drama about steel mill worker Russell Baze (Christian Bale) who divides his time between his dead-end job and caring for his terminally ill father. After his brother (Casey Affleck) returns home from Iraq, he disappears after getting involved in a dangerous crime ring. Russell decides to seek justice for his brother—even if that means taking on bad guy ringleader Woody Harrelson in the process.
Zoe Saldana, Sam Shepard and Willem Dafoe also star in the film, which opens everywhere Dec. 6.
