Wondering why times are missing?

Midnight Special

Up-and-coming indie director Jeff Nichols (Take Shelter, Mud) reunites with actor Michael Shannon for this intriguing little exercise in mid-'80s Spielbergian wonderment. In it, a father and son go on the run from mysterious government types after dad learns that his kid possesses special powers. It's mostly a slow, moody chase film, but the emotions hit harder that you might expect for such a modest experiment in genre filmmaking. 112 minutes PG-13.
