Nicolas Cage isn’t the only actor reportedly fantastic in Joe.
Tye Sheridan, who has already garnered pretty sweet reviews for his work in Mud and Tree of Life, is also said to give a powerhouse performances as a homeless teenager who has to suffer under his abusive father.
Based on Larry Brown’s great novel of the same name, the drama tells the story of how said troubled youth strikes up an unlikely friendship with the tree poisoning title hero (played by Cage). The latter has quite the temper himself which leads him on a collision course with the kid’s father.
