Child Of God
Child Of God


Directed by acclaimed filmmaker James Franco, and based on the chilling novel by Cormac McCarthy, Child of God, tells the provocative story of Lester Ballad (Scott Haze), a dispossessed, violent man, attempting to exist outside the social order. Consecutively deprived of parents and housing and driven by famished loneliness, Ballard descends literally and figuratively to the level of a cave dweller as he falls deeper into crime and degradation.

Set in a small town in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Tennessee in the 1960s, Child of God is structured in three segments with each segment describing Ballad’s ever-growing isolation of from society and social mores. Child of God also stars Jim Parrack (True Blood), Tim Blake Nelson and features an appearance by James Franco.  Co-Written by Franco and Vince Joliette, Child of God is produced by Caroline AragonVince Jolivette, and Miles Levy.
