DIGITAL SPY – “If you don’t like extraordinary television, it’s not for you.”
If you’ve never seen Rectify, you’re missing out on one of the most powerful drama series that US television has produced in decades.
Digital Spy put the question to lead actor Aden Young: if someone hasn’t watched Rectify before, why should they tune in now?
His answer may surprise you – but it’ll certainly leave you itching to binge the entire series!
Clayne Crawford – soon to be seen playing Riggs in Fox’s Lethal Weapon TV series – also recalls the first time he read the pilot script for Rectify in DS’s exclusive clip.
The award-winning Rectify tells the story of Daniel Holden (Young) – imprisoned as a teenager for the rape and murder of his 16-year-old girlfriend, Hanna.
After spending 19 years on death row, new DNA evidence vacates his original trial and Daniel must adjust to life back on the outside.
– Critics Choice Award-nominated actor also tells TheWrap’s Stuart Brazell about his upcoming movie “Spectral”
Season 4 of “Rectify” will mark the end of the show’s run on SundanceTV, and Clayne Crawford hopes that his character will go out with a bang.
“Teddy has had such a rough go at it, you know?” Crawford told TheWrap’s Stuart Brazell. “I would like there to be something redeeming for Teddy. Maybe for him to kill Tawney, and then him end up in prison. Why not, you know? It would be exciting!”
The actor, a nominee for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series at Sunday’s Critics Choice Awards, was recently cast in David E. Kelly’s new drama “Trial” for Amazon opposite Billy Bob Thornton and William Hurt.

Sorry for the delay, I had some computer problems. But I’ve caught up on Rectify.

Creator Ray McKinnon’s series achieves an austere command of the varieties of religious experience to which few recent works of American art have even aspired. It’s devotional television.
As former death row inmate Daniel Holden (Aden Young) addresses the press in the pilot episode of “Rectify” (Sundance TV), the camera moves like a supplicant shifting from one foot to the other. His conviction in the rape and murder of 16-year-old Hanna Dean two decades earlier vacated due to new DNA evidence, Daniel speaks with the soft assurance of a philosopher, or a priest, explaining the ordeal as a “strict routine” of despair suddenly disrupted by new hope.
“I had convinced myself that kind of optimism served no useful purpose in the world where I existed,” he says. “Obviously, this radical belief system was flawed and was, ironically, a kind of fantasy itself. At the least, I feel that those specific coping skills were best suited to the life there behind me. I doubt they will serve me so well for the life in front of me.”
Faith, broadly defined, is rarely taken seriously on American television, for all the supposed influence it has in our society. By comparison with greed, or fame, or power, religion as an animating force in the lives of fictional characters seems almost quaint, a relic of bygone days and retrograde opinions, or otherwise the scrim behind which corruption hides. “Rectify,” by contrast, registers as a “radical belief system” of its own, not because it evangelizes on behalf of a particular creed but because it explores the terrain on which faith and doubt meet in such crisp, painstaking detail. Among its many other merits, creator Ray McKinnon’s series achieves an austere command of the varieties of religious experience to which few recent works of American art have even aspired. It’s devotional television.

You’re going to be hearing quite a lot from us about Drew Hall’s latest film”Convergence,” an independent supernatural horror/thriller hybrid from Frame 29 Films that I’ve been truly lucky enough to see in advance of its festival run and release. The reason you’ll be hearing quite a lot about it from us (and I’m sure from multiple other sources as it starts to do the rounds) is that it is really very, very good. A twisty-turny movie from start to finish, Convergence is a terrific film which I really can’t recommend highly enough for sheer entertainment value.
For now, however, we’re just going to drop the teaser trailer that sets the eerie tone of the film without giving away any spoilers. Check it out below, and do follow Drew on Twitter here and Facebook here, and check Frame 29 Films’ website here. You won’t regret it.
