"Out of the Furnace" movie quotes take viewers on a dark tale following two brothers both looking to make their lives better, with scary consequences for their efforts. The thriller was directed by Scott Cooper using a screenplay he co-wrote with Brad Ingelsby. Tony and Ridley Scott, along with Leonardo DiCaprio, serve as producers of the film which was first released on November 27, 2013.

In "Out of the Furnace," brothers Russell (Christian Bale) and Rodney (Casey Affleck) Baze live in a distressed, working-class section of Pennsylvania. Both aspire to leave the poverty they know but each are dealing with their own demons. Russell is sent to prison while Rodney deals with remorse of serving in the military. Upon Russell's release from jail, the two catch up briefly before Rodney goes missing.

As it turns out, Rodney took out a loan from an unsavory type and agreed to join a violent crime ring to earn the money back. He sought to leave the life of crime once his debt was repaid but Curtis (Woody Harrelson) the leader, doesn't make things so easy. Russell is faced with a choice of living a law-abiding live, which would keep him with his girl Lena (Zoe Saldana), or taking the chance to go out and rescue Rodney, something that may put him back in prison or kill them both. Forest Whitaker, Willem Dafoe and Sam Shepard co-star in the film.

"Out of the Furnace" hit theaters already buzzing with other films such as "12 Years a Slave," "Frozen," "Oldboy," "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," "Delivery Man," "Nebraska," "Sunlight Jr.," "Last Vegas," "Ender's Game, "The Counselor," "Bad Grandpa," "Escape Plan," "The Fifth Estate," "Captain Phillips," "Gravity," "Machete Kills," "Runner Runner," "Don Jon," "Rush, "Prisoners,", "Enough Said," "The Family," and "Riddick,".
