Tye Sheridan, at only 17, has already worked with artists like Matt McConaughey on "Mud" and Terrence Malick on "The Tree of Life." Now, he stars as Gary, a young homeless boy who befriends an unlikely friend, Joe (Nicolas Cage). Gary's own father Wade (Gary Poulter) is abusive and an alcoholic. The more Joe notices Gary's in a dangerous position, the more he realizes he'll have to do something about it. David Gordon Green directs the southern drama. Tye chatted with ATW about playing such a challenging character and taught me Nicolas Cage's "cool face."
