Grady Lee Jr. is a struggling reclusive farmer who has never wanted to be married or have children. He lost his mom when he was a young boy and by the time he was 13, his father and step-mom died in a car wreck separating him from his stepsister, Marry Ann. Randy, his father’s best friend, took Grady in and raised him as his own and kept the family farm sustained. One day, Grady discovers his late father’s hidden journal, which contains secrets of Nikola Tesla and the plans to a machine that works off of electro-magnetism and frequencies, called Jack. Grady believes it could increase productivity by drastically reducing the time it takes a plant to grow. He believes that this could be the answer to saving his farm and helping the county, when in fact this could change the world. With the help of his friend, Boudreaux, they begin to work on the device. Boudreaux, of Native American decent, can sense a change is coming for Grady. After a call from an attorney, Grady finds himself a beneficiary to his late step sister’s last will and testament, just to discover he is custodian to a special 6 year old boy, Kai. Those that meet Kai are drawn to him, all except for Grady. The kid is a distraction he would rather not have, and keeps him from Jack. Being from the city, Kai is a stranger to nature, but, his mom remembers the farm and believes this will be the perfect environment for his ability to mature.

Chances are you know Clayne Crawford as that guy who always plays the jerk-off. The actor, 36, has long been typecast as the villain, most recently in 24 and Justified, and going back to his smirkiest work in teen movies like Swimfan and A Walk to Remember. But in Ray McKinnon’s outstanding small-town drama Rectify, Crawford gets to be heartbreaking as a frustrated tire salesman whose world is turned upside down when his brother-in-law is released from Death Row. Vulture chatted with Crawford about feeling bad for fratty Ted Jr., long days on set, and coming to terms with a chronic case of what he calls relaxed douche face.
Things are falling apart for Teddy. His marriage is in trouble. The tire business is in bad shape. I’m sure there are plenty of people who still want to punch him for the way he treats Daniel, but I just feel so bad for him.
