About the Movie
Academy Award® winner Tommy Lee Jones "is magnificent" (THE WRAP) in what critics are calling "the best western since UNFORGIVEN" (BBC). When low-life drifter George Briggs (Jones) is rescued from hanging by the strong-willed Mary Bee Cuddy (Academy Award® winner Hilary Swank), he agrees to help her cross the plains by covered wagon, but the stark beauty of the frontier hides constant threats, enemies, and psychological peril. Also starring Meryl Streep, James Spader, and John Lithgow.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Right or wrong, "The Homesman" belongs to Jones and Swank, and for Western aficionados it's worth seeing.
Rotten: Few will regret having seen "The Homesman," and yet it's not exactly an enjoyable experience.
Fresh: For a movie headlined by two Oscar-winning Hollywood stars - and directed and co-written by one of them - "The Homesman" is awfully close to outsider art.
Fresh: Some recent interviews with Jones paint him as a bit of a curmudgeon. But he's right to push back against being put into a box. "The Homesman" succeeds mainly because it and he don't neatly fit into one.
If you’ve seen Kevin Sorbo’s “Prairie Fever” you’ve seen this one. They aren’t identical but close enough that if you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them both.
About time Westerns Come back!
Leave it up to Mr. Jones, to put out a great modern day Western. I didn’t know what to expect, but it wasn’t so much a traditional western, with guns, Native Americans, good and bad guys, but internal struggles amongst all the characters and how they eventually learn to work with each other in their own way. Definitely has some twists in it, some that bummed me out, but over all, it is worth it to have it in your collection. Hillary Swank and Tommy Lee Jones, great cast in general. Beautiful scenery, simple, and grand. Support this movie! Its a good one I know I will watch over and over...
