Western movies are a rare breed of movies nowadays. They are hardly made, but when they are, most of them aren’t done very well. Fortunately, there is that one out of the bunch that shines above all others. From it’s first trailer, Homesman looks like it has a chance to be that very needle in the hay stack, especially with Tommy Lee Jones and Hilary Swank leading the way.
A claim jumper and a pioneer woman team up to escort three insane women from Nebraska to Iowa.
We haven’t seen much of Jones or Swank these days. Jones pops up in Men in Black sequel or elderly romcom here and there and it seems Swank is doing smaller projects, which means she’s focusing on the roles and not the money. When we do see them in a big(ger) budget movie, they are usually damn good as they are both impressive as hell on screen. I’m very curious and intrigued to see what they can do on screen together.
The Homesman will open on October 7th, 2014. Directed by Tommy Lee Jones starring Tommy Lee Jones, Hilary Swank, Meryl Streep, Hailee Steinfield, Grace Gummer, Miranda Otto, John Lithgow, Tim Blake Nelson, James Spader, William Fichtner, Jesse Plemons, Sonja Richter, and David Dencik.
