If you liked "Winter's Bone," you'll love this film!

The adult characters are trivial and this leaves us with the boys and the usual coming-of-age story we’ve seen many times in other films.

I almost felt as if I were watching a movie set in a foreign county due to the accents, dialect, natural setting, and customs of Arkansas displayed in this film - that atmosphere was one of my favorite things about the film. I agree with many other commentators that that actors playing the 2 young boys (whose character names were Neckbone and Ellis) were fantastic and drew me in more than Reese Witherspoon or Matthew McCounaughey's roles.

I also really enjoyed seeing Sam Shephard on screen again - have not seen him in anything for along time!

I was a little put off by the Hollywood ending. However, I would definitely watch it again.

Well done, a kind of updated Huck Finn with terrific actors.

Good story and acting. My husband and 18 year old son enjoyed this probably more than I did, and I enjoyed it!

A first-class cast wrestles with a YA script. The two boy actors make the series of increasingly unlikely yet predictable events plausible, even worthwhile. It's nice to see McConaughey and Witherspoon in something decent again. A good film for playing Hey! It's That Guy (Joe Don Baker! Michael Shannon! That lady from 12 Years a Slave!)

what a truly interesting view of Arkansas culture and lifestyle. a great cast with a touch for their roles. we escaped from the rerun Olympics to watch this film. a really good choice. not a surprise ending but fitting for the era and lifestyle.

A good, not great, well-acted coming of age tale. Dark and brooding at times with an edge that doesn't spare its young protagonist. Moves slow, but is a satisfying watch. Ends a little too clean for all its dirt.
