Story


Nebraska, 1854. Mary Bee, 31, lives a solitary existence in a God-fearing frontier town. She is designated by members of her church to take back East three traumatized women who have lost their minds. On the way, Mary saves the life of Briggs, a deserter and outlaw, who agrees to help in her mission in return for $300 if they reach their destination safely. Through snowstorms and perilous encounters with settlers and Indians, the two loners grow closer until Mary proposes marriage. Whatever Briggs chooses-a beautiful wife or carefree drifting-for both of them, life can never be the same again...

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..a terrific performance by Hilary Swank as a steely pioneer. But then her director and co-star, Tommy Lee Jones, gets off track, shifting his focus and losing some of our interest in the process..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
“..a rare 21st-century Western without shootouts or explosions, the well-directed "The Homesman" (based on a novel by the author of "The Shootist") paints a striking portrait of two individuals unable to find a happy ending in a brutal time and place..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
“..The Homesman aims for a story that's poignant and told sparely, but comes across as mawkish, tedious and self-indulgent..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
