Flem tries to talk his way into Jeromes mercy. Eventually Jerome shoots him in the head, and decides not to tell anything, even about Ernest, to Mary.
Stars : Nicholas Hoult, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Michael Shannon
A mind-numbingly dragging plot with stale, emotionless acting, with an attempted "artistic" feel that fails miserably. The film is as dry as the desert dystopian land it portrays. At no time did I connect with or feel any empathy towards any of the characters....not caring one way or the other if any of them lived, died, found happiness, or wallowed in misery.

Wow. It's a slow burn, but it burns so good. Haven't seen a movie this original in a while. Re-imagines the sci-fi western in a very personal, human way. All the actors are really at the top of their game here, and the low-budget really helps the film hew true and focus on the characters, their relationships and the setting.

In a near future, water has become the most precious and dwindling resource on the planet, one that dictates everything from the macro of political policy to the detailed micro of interpersonal family and romantic relationships. The land has withered into something wretched. The dust has settled on a lonely, barren planet. The hardened survivors of the loss of Earth's precious resources scrape and struggle. Ernest Holm lives on this harsh frontier with his children, Jerome and Mary. He defends his farm from bandits, works the supply routes, and hopes to rejuvenate the soil. But Mary's boyfriend, Flem Lever, has grander designs. He wants Ernest's land for himself, and will go to any length to get it.
