About the Movie
Henry Heath, a grieving lawman whose daughter has recently died, is assigned custody of the ghoulish Jean Baptiste, a notorious robber of 300 graves. Against the perilous Utah desert terrain, the contempt of an entire community, and his own prejudice, Heath must somehow keep a marked man alive.
True story with lots of heart
This movie tells a true story of some early settlers in Utah. One man, accused of grave robbing, is exiled to an island in the Great Salt Lake where his only human contact is with a man who brings him food periodically. It's a beautiful message of connecting with those we least expect and finding ways to move on from the baggage that can be difficult to let go of. It can be a little slow, but like a caterpillar in a chrysalis, it's worth a little bit of patience.
An important double-take on justice
Watch for a beautifully shot, period-accurate western, but keep in mind this isn't the cowboy shoot-em-up type as much as other westerns are, it's a cerebral film to the very core.
I love this movie. I think everyone should see it. There are parts of the movie that are a bit hard to follow, in previous cuts I saw it was much easier to follow.
