Set in 19th Century Colorado, but undeniably European in sensibility, Slow West tells the story of sixteen-year-old Jay as he travels from Scotland to Colorado in pursuit of his lost love. He is quickly confronted by the dangers of the Frontier and so teams up with a mysterious traveller named Silas, who agrees to protect him - for a price. Jay's quest will be one of double-crossing, violence and peril as the guileless adolescent learns that the West takes no pity, least of all on the innocent.
Ratings and Reviews
Very good, very strange, and very bloody absurdist Western.
