The year is 1952. To the good folk of a small West Texas town, deputy sheriff Lou Ford is courteous, upstanding, and possibly even a little bit dull. But it’s all a carefully-constructed act because, behind the charming smile, he’s struggling to control 'the sickness', the depraved impulses that have lain dormant for so long until now…

Starring alongside Kate Hudson and Jessica Alba, Casey Affleck plays the murderously insane deputy who not only has to investigate a string of deaths, but who, as suspicion begins to fall upon him, must also provide the alibis to cover his own twisted tracks.

With his first fully US-shot film, genre-eclectic British director Michael Winterbottom offers a faithfully visceral adaptation of Jim Thompson’s dark and violent noir; unflinching in its portrayal of a psychopathic killer who can seemingly escape neither the small town he’s stuck in, nor his own nihilistic urges.
