‘The Quarry’ Trailer: Sin & Redemption in the Wilds of Texas

Lionsgate has released the official trailer for The Quarry, reuniting Boardwalk Empire co-stars Shea Whigham and Michael Shannon.

That’s a well put together trailer. In two minutes I have a good sense of the story without knowing where it’s going to go. I like the idea of a murderer posing as a preacher, and I always think Whigham needs more lead roles where he’s allowed to show the world why he’s such a good actor. I think this has the makings of a nice, small thriller. I’ll have to keep an eye out for this on demand or on Blu-ray.

Plot Synopsis:

From the novel by Damon Galgut comes this searing thriller, a tale of sin and redemption set in the wilds of Texas. After murdering a traveling preacher, a fugitive drifter (Shea Whigham, Joker) travels to a small town and poses as the man he killed. Though the congregation loves the drifter’s sermons of forgiveness, the local police chief (Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon, The Shape of Water) is suspicious of the man. Soon a gruesome discovery at a local quarry forces the killer to fight for his freedom.

The Quarry hits select theaters and on demand April 17, 2020.
