After its premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, Kevin Smith’s latest film Red State really caught the attention of main stream audiences. People want to know what it is. Who is in it? And how the story plays out. We can’t reveal everything, but you can definitely read our review of the film for our opinion on it. If you need something that’s more visually stimulating, MTV has just released a clip from the film that features Oscar nominee Melissa Leo. Check it out…
Red State is a horror film in which a group of misfits encounter fundamentalism gone to the extreme in Middle America. It takes on every area of politics, horror, and religion there is to take and delivers it in a way that only Kevin Smith can. This clip features Leo, along with Kyle Gallner, Michael Angarano, and Nicholas Braun.
As you can see the three teens are looking to score some sexual favors from Leo’s character Sarah. To say this is an uncomfortable and odd scenario would be an understatement. Not only is she a middle aged woman engaging in sexual acts with young men (in a group), she’s also the daughter of religious leader Pastor Abin Cooper. He’s the head honcho of the extremist church the film follows. We doubt her dad would like this behavior.
