The Slaughter Rule

Categories: Drama, Festivals, Sports

In this acclaimed sports drama, Roy (Ryan Gosling) gets cut from his high school football team just days after his estranged father dies. For him, football is more than a proving ground; it is a promised escape from his lonely rural existence and salvation from the paralyzing passivity that dominates his life. Enter Gideon (David Morse), a loner living on the roughneck fringe who is looking for kids to play on his six-man football squad. Roy joins the Renegades, and he and Gideon enter into tenuous friendship that pushes the limits of male bonding. A Sundance Film Festival sensation featuring a bevy of future Oscar contenders, THE SLAUGHTER RULE co-stars Amy Adams, Clea Duvall and Kelly Lynch.
