Product Description In 1960s Tennessee, Lester Ballard is a dispossessed, violent man one the narrator describes as a child of God much like yourself. Deprived first of his family and then his home, Ballard descends literally and figuratively to the level of a cave dweller, falling deeper into a disturbing life of crime and degradation. DVD EXTRASTRAILER Review "Profoundly intense .. [an] incredible and fierce performance" --Film Threat "Jaw-dropping...Franco delivers the goods with this great, grisly adaptation" --Guardian UK "A galvanizing portrait of social and sexual deviance" --Variety About the Actor Scott Haze and James Franco became close friends when they both attended acting school at Playhouse West in Los Angeles.
