Still shot from the movie: God’s Pocket.

God’s Pocket

No one in the community of God's Pocket seems the least concerned about the suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of Leon (Caleb Landry Jones), except his mother (Christina Hendricks). And when she asks the boy's stepfather (Philip Seymour Hoffman) to help her find some answers, all kinds of problems ensue.

From the Studio:

When Mickey’s crazy stepson Leon is killed in a construction ‘accident’, nobody in the working class neighborhood of God’s Pocket is sorry he’s gone. Mickey tries to bury the bad news with the body, but when the boy’s mother demands the truth, Mickey finds himself stuck in a life and death struggle between a body he can’t bury, a wife he can’t please and a debt he can’t pay. - Written by IFC Films
