We love it when someone we love gets cast in a movie we wouldn’t normally see. Why? Because then we are motivated to go outside the comfort zone, and see things that could absolutely be amazing.
We freely admit that the only reason that we will be seeing The Long Home is because Josh Hutcherson is going to be starring in the film.

Based on the novel by William Gay, “The Long Home” is set in the 1940s in rural Tennessee, where a young man (Hutcherson) goes to work building a honkytonk for a charismatic and diabolical bootlegger, unaware that the man had murdered his father 10 years prior.
