Slant Magazine
6 June 2013
  • Excerpt: "Suppose I shot you. How'd that be?" That challenge, by Kit Carruthers (Martin Sheen) to the father of his underage lover, Holly (Sissy Spacek), is a trademark purr, oscillating between candor and impassivity, his words bouncing off the shabby walls of Holly's quiet South Dakota home like a...
