'Midnight Special' shines as impactful, sci-fi thriller

- "Midnight Special" is far from a formulaic sci-fi movie.

The 2016 thriller mixes elements of government conspiracy, supernatural powers and cultish populations to create a masterful look at an engaging father-son relationship.

Bill Zwecker gives his take on the film and interviews co-stars Joel Edgerton and Kirstin Dunst about how they dealt with their unique roles.

Directed by Jeff Nichols, "Midnight Special" comes to theaters this Friday.
