South of Heaven 2021 Movie Review
South of Heaven, a new drama starring Jason Sudeikis, Evangeline Lilly, Shea Whigham, and Mike Colter, a tense look at a man just trying to do what is right for the love of his life, and a surprisingly dark turn from Sudeikis.
The South of Heaven trailer features Sudeikis as Jimmy, a man who receives early parole after an armed robbery, and promises to give his dying girlfriend Annie (Lilly) a great last year. However, Sudeikis is thrown into the world of crime once more, which puts him at odds with his parole officer (Whigham) and a crime boss (Colter).
While Sudeikis is usually known for his lighter roles on Ted Lasso, Saturday Night Live, and Horrible Bosses, South of Heaven looks to show us a new side of the actor. As he tries to protect the love of his life from the oncoming danger, Sudeikis is intimidating and vengeful in a way that we’ve never seen him before. This also looks like a great opportunity for Lilly to do more dramatic work, as well as put Whigham and Colter in juicy villainous roles.
South of Heaven comes to theaters, on-demand, and digital on October 8. Check out the official trailer
