    Frailty is a multi-layered, tightly woven thriller starring Matthew McConaughey and Bill Paxton. Paxton will also be making his directorial debut, surrounded by a talented crew led by Bill Butler as the D.P. (Anaconda, Grease, Jaws). Set in present day Texas, Frailty centers on the FBI's search for a serial killer who calls himself "God's Hands.- McConaughey plays Fenton Meeks, a young man who approaches the lead investigator, one night, claiming he knows the identity of the killer. The FBI agent is curious, but unimpressed until Fenton reveals that the killer is his younger brother Adam. In the style of the Usual Suspects, Fenton recounts in a series of flashbacks, how he and his brother grew up in a very loving family, raised by their widowed father (Paxton). All that changed, the day his father awoke, believing he had been visited by an angel and given a mission to destroy "demons" - seemingly normal looking people, who walked this earth as pure evil. Fenton-s father, and then his brother Adam, swore to carry out this -divine- mission. Fenton refused to participate in the killings and tried to persuade his brother to do the same, but it was obvious to him that they had -snapped.- Out of loyalty however, he refused to go to the police, until now. Believing Fenton-s startling tale of the slaughter of innocents, the FBI agent follows Fenton to the family-s rose garden only to be surprised that neither evil nor innocence are what they seem.moreless

    Movie

    Frailty is a 2002 thriller about a family of three men who are either servants of God on a quest to rid the world of Evil, or deranged mad men obsessed with justifying their slaughters as religious acts. Bill Paxton plays Dad, who tells his two young boys he's been charged by God to kill demons. When he touches people, he's capable of seeing the crimes they've committed in the past. If they've committed murder, Dad kills them with an axe. The film takes place in present day, when the two boys are grown up, although much of the story is told through flashbacks. Matthew McConaughey plays one of the children. He goes to speak with FBI Agent Doyle (Powers Boothe), following the death of his brother. He claims the many unsolved "God's Hand" murders are his brother's fault, and now that he's dead he can tell the story of their childhood. However, the spiritual killings may not be over yet. Frailty is a tense psychological thriller and Bill Paxton's directorial debut.moreless
