From director Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart) comes a gritty drama about family loyality, circumstance and justice starting Christian Bale in the lead role.
Out of the Furnace tells the tale of Russell Baze (Bale). He works a dead-end blue collar job at the local steel mill by day and cares for his terminally ill father by night. When Russell's brother Rodney (Casey Affleck) returns home from serving time in Iraq, he gets lured into one of the most ruthless crime rings in the Northeast but then mysteriously disappears after declaring to step away from the life of crime. The police fail to crack the case of his disappearance and so - with nothing left to lose - Russell takes matters into his own hands. He puts his life on the line to seek justice for his brother.
