Academy Award winner Robert De Niro and Oscar nominee Edward Norton deliver powerful performances as a seasoned corrections official and a scheming inmate whose lives become dangerously intertwined in “Stone,” a thought-provoking drama directed by John Curran.

As parole officer Jack Mabry counts the days toward a quiet retirement, he is asked to review the case of Gerald “Stone” Creeson, in prison for covering up the murder of his grandparents with a fire. Now eligible for early release, Stone needs to convince Jack he has reformed, but his attempts to influence the older man’s decision have profound and unexpected effects on them both.

“Stone” skillfully weaves together the parallel journeys of two men grappling with dark impulses, as the line between lawman and lawbreaker becomes precariously thin.

John Curran garnered international acclaim for his independent film "We Don't Live Here Anymore." Starring Mark Ruffalo, Laura Dern, Peter Krause and Naomi Watts, "We Don't Live Here Anymore" was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival and the Grand Special Prize at the Deauville American Film Festival. Most recently, he directed "The Painted Veil," an adaptation of the 1925 novel by Somerset Maugham starring Edward Norton and Naomi Watts. Curran also served as executive producer on the film.

His debut feature film, "Praise", earned him the Film Critics Circle of Australia Award for Best Direction. Curran's other directing credits include the award-winning short film "Down Rusty Down."

Curran wrote the screenplay for the 2010 thriller, "The Killer Inside Me". The film, based on Jim Thompson's classic novel about a West Texas sheriff-turned-serial-killer, was nominated for the Berlin Film Festival's Golden Bear award.
