StoryA seasoned corrections official and a volatile inmate find their lives dangerously intertwined in Stone, a thought-provoking drama directed by John Curran and written by Angus MacLachlan. Stone features powerful performances by Academy Award winner Robert De Niro and Oscar nominee Edward Norton, and a startlingly raw, breakout performance from Milla Jovovich as the sexy, casually amoral woman they both desire.
As parole officer Jack Mabry counts the days toward a quiet retirement, he is asked to review the case of Gerald "Stone" Creeson, in prison for covering up the murder of his grandparents with a fire. Now eligible for early release, Stone needs to convince Jack he has reformed, but his attempts to influence the older man's decision have profound and unexpected consequences for them both.
Stone skillfully weaves together the parallel journeys of two men grappling with dark impusles, as the line between lawman and lawbreaker becomes precariously thin. Golden Globe winner Frances Conroy completes the superb ensemble as Madlyn, Jack's devout, long-suffering spouse.
Set against the quiet desperation of economically ravaged suburban Detroit and the stifling brutality of a maximum security prison, this tale of passion, betrayl and corruption examines the fractured lives of two voliatile men breaking from their troubled pasts to face uncertain futures.
