That is indeed Samuel L. Jackson and Tommy Lee Jones looking rather stressed. Well, two-character play adaptations about strangers flung together by desperate circumstances can be fraught with tension. Tommy's looking particularly drawn 'cause he also chose to direct this drama based on Cormac McCarthy's stage play. Set in a New York tenement apartment, a devoutly religious black ex-convict saves a white atheist academic from committing suicide and brings him home. The two strangers discuss their different outlooks on life, religion and human suffering, as well as the circumstances that have driven the professor to despair. It does sound a bit heavy, but it there's no denying it's powerful viewing.
