A History of Violence

March 02, 2024


When a pair of petty criminals attempt to rob his small-town diner, Tom Stall quickly and easily kills them both. In the flush of news coverage of Tom’s seemingly heroic actions, a threatening stranger comes to town, fingering the unassuming family man as long-missing Philadelphia mobster Joey Cusack. To the horror of his wife and teenage son, Tom finds he has no choice but to confront his violent past.

Craig, co-host Elisabeth Rappe and guest Mark Woodring talk about sex on the stairs, the lack of mature movies, Oscar predictions and the movie “A History of Violence” on this week’s Matinee Heroes!
