A gripping mix of friendship, violence, and redemption erupts in the contemporary South in this adaptation of Larry Brown's novel, celebrated at once for its grit and its deeply moving core. Directed by David Gordon Green (PRINCE AVALANCHE, PINEAPPLE EXPRESS, ALL THE REAL GIRLS), the film brings Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage back to his indie roots in the title role as the hard-living, hot-tempered, ex-con Joe Ransom, who is just trying to dodge his instincts for trouble- until he meets a hard luck kid, (Tye Sheridan, MUD, TREE OF LIFE), who awakens in him a fierce and tender hearted protector. The story begins as Joe hires teenaged Gary Jones and his destitute father onto his 'tree-poisoning' crew for a lumber company. Joe might be notoriously reckless with his pick-up, his dog, and especially with women, but he sees somthing in Gary that gets to him: a determination, a raw decency, and a sense of resilience he can barely believe in anymore. They form an unlikely bond, and when Gary finds himself facing a threat greater than he knows how to handle, he turns to Joe- and sets off a chain of events that play out with the brutal inevitability of tragedy and the beauty of a last stab at salvation.

From the bacon-fueled minds that bring you the annual Blue Ribbn Bacon Festival, comes “State of Bacon”! It tells both real and make-believe stories leading up to the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival.  Bacon-enthusiasts, Governor Branstad, a bacon queen, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, members of PETA, and an envoy of Icelanders are not excluded from this bacon party and during the course of the film become intertwined with the organizers of the festival to show that bacon diplomacy is not dead.
 
The film features festival attendees, actors, musicians, politicians and chefs from around Iowa.  The extensive credit list includes:  David Anthony Higgins, Senator Chuck Grassley, DDEP, Mr. Baber’s Neighbors, Chef Joe McConville, and more.  Marshall Porter, the film’s co-producer and member of the Iowa Bacon Board, described the film as, “an extension of our town’s quirky festival celebrating all things bacon.”  Porter claims the movie plays best when paired with a few beers and a bag of bacon - seriously dudes, seriously.
 
The movie is a smokey blend of mockumentary, documentary and comedy. It mixes fiction characters with real-life characters. Informative, funny and just plain off the wall.
It's...well...here, just watch the trailer!
