New Netflix film ‘The Devil All The Time’ boasts an all-star cast including Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Homecoming, Avengers: Infinity War, The Impossible), Chris Evans (Captain America, Marvel’s The Avengers, Snowpiercer), Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland, Jane Eyre, Crimson Peak), Robert Pattinson (Good Time, The Rover), Bill Skarsgard (It, Castle Rock), Eliza Scanlen (Sharp Objects, Little Women) and Tony Award Winner Gabriel Ebert (Ricki and the Flash).
It’s an adaptation of adaptation of Donald Ray Pollock’s 2011 novel by the same name next month in Alabama. So what is it all about?
In a place called Knockemstiff, Ohio, a forgotten backwoods of this country – a storm of faith, violence and redemption brews. Out of desperation to save his dying wife, Willard Russell turns to prayer which succumbs to sacrifice. This sets our protagonist Arvin, Willard’s son, on his path from bullied kid to a man who knows when to take action. The Devil All the Time is a finely woven “mid-western” gothic tale involving a nefarious cast of characters: a serial killer couple, a faith-testing preacher, and a corrupt local sheriff in a story that is told across two decades.
The Devil All The Time will be available to stream on Netflix from 16 September.
