a must-see for Mark Pellegrino fans

A slow-paced slice of life drama, "Joint Body" is the sad tale of Nick Burke,
a man who just can't seem to stay on the right side of the law.

Newly-paroled and forbidden from contacting his ex-wife and daughter, Nick tries to move on with his life,
only to risk everything during an impulsive decision to help Michelle,
a troubled younger woman who seems just as jaded and desperate as Nick himself.

Daunted by the prospect of returning to prison, Nick sets out to escape with the ambivalent Michelle,
who hasn't decided for herself yet if she either wants or deserves to be saved by Nick.
Only after a heartbreaking final attempt to see his daughter do we realize just how he may enact that escape,
for as Nick puts it, he was always guilty of "taking the easy way out."

Alicia Witt gives a convincing performance as the skittish and bitter Michelle,
and the ex-con Nick would most likely be less sympathetic in the hands of someone less skilled than Mark Pellegrino.
Fans of the consummate guest actor (always excellent in "Lost", "Supernatural", and "Being Human")
will enjoy seeing his talents on display in almost every scene here.

Mark Pellegrino is a sexy beast. So I believe any movie he is in is good. The only thing I didn't like was the ending. (SORRY SPOILERS). But the story line was fantastic.

I ALWAYS TOOK THE EASY WAY OUT
Nick (Mark Pellegrino) gets out of prison after seven years for multiple crimes of which we have sketchy details, but we do know he was a violent offender. His ex-wife has moved on with a restraining order barring him from seeing his daughter. Out of prison for less than a week he comes to the aid of a stripper (Alica Witt) and once again faces 10 years in jail.

It is a pretty boring film. There is not much action and the drama left something to be desired. Nick remained calmed and bored looking for much of the film, same as me.

Guide: F-bomb, brief sex, brief rape, brief nudity (Alicia Witt + stripper)

Really entertaining and well acted independent Thriller!
Enjoyed this well crafted movie with wonderful performances by the whole cast -- especially Mark Pellegrino, Alicia Witt, and Tom Guiry. Engaging dramatic thriller for an adult audience. This movie is definitely worth checking out! Would agree #JointBody is a winner.
