Release Year: 2015

Director: Gavin O’Connor

Writers: Brian Duffield (screenplay & story), Joel Edgerton (screenplay), Anthony Tambakis (screenplay)

Starring: Natalie Portman, Joel Edgerton, Ewan McGregor, Noah Emmerich, Boyd Holbrook, Rodrigo Santoro, James Burnett, Sam Quinn, Maisie McMaster

A woman asks her former lover to help her when a violent gang comes to kill her outlaw husband.

The title and the poster might lead you to think this is an action-packed gunslinger flick, but that would be a mistake. This is really more of a Western drama, exploring the past relationship between Portman (Thor, 2011) and Edgerton (Black Mass, 2015), but cuminating a good gunfight with Ewan McGregor’s bad guy. The narrative is split up by plenty of flashback; the aggravating kind that is jumbled and confused. Despite its narrative drawbacks, the actor do well and we care enough about their characters to stick with them till the end. A sombre Western drama with a romantic edge. Not for everyone but good for what it is.
