Tommy Lee Jones co-writes, directs and stars in this elegant western, dealing with the genre’s familiar geographical and thematic terrain, but refreshingly from a largely feminist perspective. Three women who have been driven mad by the land and relentless grind of everyday life need to be transported back to their homes in Iowa. The strong and resourceful farmer Mary Bee sets out to do this, but enlists the help of an army deserter, who has been lynched for stealing land, along the way. This emotional drama is lifted by a clutch of strong performances and beautiful vistas that both capture and challenge people’s romantic notions of life on the land.
