2014 Dallas International Film Festival: We Gotta Get Out of This Place
In We Gotta Get Out of This Place, Billy Joe is a Texan teen who works on a cotton farm outside Corpus Christi. Before his best friends go away for college, Billy wants to give them one last weekend to remember. Strapped for cash, he foolishly steals from his ruthless boss, which ends up forcing them to rob local criminals in order to pay back the money. The result is a gritty crime drama meets coming-of-age story.
