Episode 142 of LaF features a review Midnight Special starring Michael Shanno and Joel Edgerton. Our hosts, Richard Lusk and Ryan Bull, have been eagerly awaiting the release of director Jeff Nichol's science fiction film ever since it was announced. The movie follows a father and son who are forced to run when the government and a cult seek out the young boy because of his special powers. The film features a strong supporting cast of Kirsten Dunst, Adam Driver, and Jaeden Lieberher, who all turn in fine acting performances. In addition to the movie review, the fellas rank Midnight Special among Jeff Nichols's other films, discuss the parenting themes of the film, and find ways to disagree about presence(or lack of) plot holes.
