South of Heaven: Directed by Aharon Keshales. With Jason Sudeikis, Evangeline Lilly, Mike Colter, Shea Whigham. Convicted felon Jimmy gets early parole after serving twelve years for armed robbery. Upon his release, he vows to give Annie, his childhood love, now dying from cancer, the best last year of her life – unfortunately it’s not that simple.
Jason Sudeikis and Evangline Lilly do a great job as a pair of every day people caught up in the stupid things that people get caught up in while they’re just trying to live their lives and do right by their loved ones. I thought they were going to go the easy route with the ending, but they didn’t and it’s a stronger movie for that decision.
