Following its critically-acclaimed debut at the Sundance Film Festival in January, IFC Films has released the first trailer for God's Pocket, which stars Philip Seymour Hoffman in one of his final roles. The late actor, who tragically passed away in February, plays Mickey Scarpato, who tries to cover up the death of his stepson (Caleb Landry Jones) in the feature directorial debut of Mad Men star John Slattery. In addition, we also have the first poster for this dark comedy, co-starring Christina Hendricks, John Turturro and Richard Jenkins, which arrives in theaters May 9.
Philip Seymour Hoffman and Christina Hendricks star in this deliciously twisted comedy directed by Mad Men's John Slattery. When Mickey's (Hoffman) crazy stepson Leon is killed in a construction "accident," nobody in the working class neighborhood of God's Pocket is sorry he's gone. Mickey tries to bury the bad news with the body, but when the boy's mother demands the truth, Mickey finds himself stuck in a life-and-death struggle between a body he can't bury, a wife he can't please and a debt he can't pay. Also stars John Turturro and Richard Jenkins.
