Film: The Homesman
It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything movie related, not that I haven’t been watching anything (well 21 new films since the winter soldier to be exact) such as Godzilla, Transformers 4, Edge of Tomorrow, A million Ways To Die In The West, X-Men Days of Future Past…. and so on.
The thing is nothing has really amazed me recently until I checked out The Homesman. It’s a bleak western style film backed up by a lot of hype from the Cannes festival. Tommy Lee Jones and Hilary Swank lead the films main roles with great interaction through what is a very twisting story line interlaced with the harsh environment of the outer territories. The film is questionable at the very start and I was not too interested at first, but you soon get sucked in by the shocking scenes which I would rather not go into detail.
The film is a real emotional struggle which will guarantee to make you thankful for living in today’s world and not in the past. To rate this film I would give it an 8/10. It’s a watch once movie but a very good one for sure.
