Movie Info

Donald Devlin is a garbage man in the fictional town of Harburgh, Pennsylvania, a former steel town that has seen brighter days. A single father, Donny spends his days collecting the trash of the residents alongside his best friend, Donna Reutzel, and in his off-time, focuses his energies on being the best father he can be to his young daughter, Wendy. But when young Tyler Zeigler, a neighborhood boy, goes missing, Donny starts to fixate on finding out what has happened to him. With the local sheriff warning him off, and the town reacting to the young boy's disappearance in a variety of confusing and suspicious ways, Donny determines to learn the truth. But the truth may not want to be revealed.

  • [Andrew] Scott here fascinates as a vulnerable yet remarkably resilient odd duck.

    March 24, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The film, alas, despite [Andrew Scott's] best efforts, is dramatically inert and riddled with plot holes.

  • It's the chemistry between Scott and his female co-stars that makes Steel Country worth a look.

    April 21, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Donny Devlin, a socially awkward garbage collector in a Pennsylvanian backwater, could have been a great Scott character if the writing and direction were more up to snuff.

    April 18, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • This is a perfectly decent premise for a procedural thriller and Scott does his best to sell it. But some of the plot turns are preposterous and gibberingly ridiculous.

    April 18, 2019 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • "A Dark Place" is earnest enough, but it comes across as phony. It's hard to do a "local color" drama when everyone's from out of town.
