Child of God

Based on the acclaimed 1973 Cormac McCarthy novel, director James Franco’s CHILD OF GOD takes place in 1960s Tennessee, where 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.
