Shotgun Stories tracks a feud that erupts between two sets of half-brothers following the death of their father. Set against the cotton fields and back roads of Southeast Arkansas, these brothers discover the lengths to which each will go to protect their families. «Using a haunting soundtrack by Lucero and Pyramid and the captivating cinematography by Adam Stone to create the sleepy backdrop of a poor rural community, Nichols' epic tale of feuding half-brothers builds with the speed and intensity of a hot southern day. In his feature directorial debut, Jeff Nichols is surprisingly not afraid to allow pregnant silences or sweeping scenery to fill his screen. Nor is he afraid to spend the time necessary to build his supporting characters with meticulous detail. On the whole, Nichols avoids stereotypical characterizations and brings Son and his brothers to life with poignant originality.» (Patricia Freeman)
