Directed by James Marsh
Drama starring Gael Garcia Bernal and William Hurt.
Elvis (Bernal) is a handsome and charismatic 21-year-old just out of the US Navy.
He returns to his father's sleepy Texan hometown dreaming of some kind of reconciliation, having been abandoned by the man as a child.
But Pastor David (William Hurt) has a new family - wife Twyla (Laura Harring) and teenage children Malerie (Pell James) and Paul (Paul Dano) - and is in no mood to confront his past mistakes, so he callously rejects Elvis again.
This flippant act of cruelty unleashes a tragedy of truly biblical proportions, as Elvis begins to make his way into the family, seducing Malerie.
