Movie Info

The autumnal mountains of southern Appalachia hold a haunting power within which Cole Freeman (Philip Ettinger FIRST REFORMED), maintains an uneasy equilibrium, looking after the old and infirm in the community while selling their excess painkillers to local addicts to help make ends meet. But when an old friend, Terry Rose (Cosmo Jarvis, LADY MACBETH), returns with dangerous new plans that threaten the fragile balance Cole has crafted amidst the addiction, economic stress and environmental devastation that have his declining mining town in a stranglehold, his world and identity are thrown into deep disarray. Life is pushed even further out of balance by the sudden homecoming of Cole's estranged mother, Ruby (Lili Taylor, THE CONJURING), increasing conflict with the region's true drug dealer, Everett (Marc Menchaca, OZARK, THE OUTSIDER) and shifting relationships with two local women: Charlotte (Stacy Martin, NYMPHOMANIAC) and Lacy (Kerry Bishé, ARGO). Faced with an impossible set of choices and intensifying pressure from all sides, Cole soon decides that he has to take action to save the tight-knit fabric of family, friendship, land and history that binds everything and everyone he loves.

Critic Reviews for The Evening Hour

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (1)

  • This is one of those films in which people on the edge of poverty and battling addiction still look like they walked off a Hollywood set.

    February 1, 2020 | Full Review…
  • It's an atmospheric portrait which, while leaving several key story strands under-explored, does convey a vivid sense of the support system which powers and protects these lives lived on the periphery.

    January 29, 2020 | Full Review…
  • King clearly wants to do right by these people, but at a certain point his empathy begins to hurt the film as much as it helps it, leaving us with the unsolvable irony of a movie that rings true only when it goes off the rails.

    January 28, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • An unsensationalized look at moral compromise in opioid-era Appalachia.

    January 28, 2020 | Full Review…
  • This snapshot of life in a tapped-out Appalachian mining town holds the attention, even if it doesn't quite maximize potential as either melodrama or character piece.

  • May lean into stereotypes of Appalachia and the lawless dead end many find themselves driving into. But King...humanizes the character "types" and the "statistics" to make one of the more compelling dramas set in this world and its struggles.

  • Lastly, director Braden King makes good use of his setting. He maintains the feels of an economically depressed Appalachian town, which is a character in and of itself.
