Overview

A strong-willed woman recruits a loathsome drifter to help transport three insane women across the unforgiving Nebraska Territories so that they may find sanctuary with a compassionate minister and his wife in this drama directed and co-written by Tommy Lee Jones. Driven to madness by the harsh realities of pioneer life, three women (Grace Gummer, Miranda Otto, and Sonja Richter) living on the outskirts of the American frontier are rescued from certain death by pious Mary Bee Cuddy (Hilary Swank), who selflessly takes on the task of transporting them to safety. Along the way, Mary Bee encounters a low-life named George Briggs (Tommy Lee Jones) with his head in a noose. In exchange for helping her transport the women, Mary Bee frees the scruffy stranger, and together the group heads east. In the course of their arduous journey, however, they will encounter ruthless bandits and vengeful Native Americans. Meanwhile, the greatest test to their resolve may be the harsh winter that's blowing in fast. Meryl Streep, John Lithgow, Hailee Steinfeld, William Fichtner, Tim Blake Nelson, and James Spader co-star.

Reviews:
"Swank and Jones, in particular, are a very good odd couple, playing saint and sinner, sometimes reversing the roles." - 11/13/2014 Los Angeles Times


"Tommy Lee Jones’ off-beat minor-key Western has plenty of virtues..." - 11/13/2014 A.V. Club


3 stars out of 4 -- "Jones and Swank, walking the tightrope between comic and tragic, ignite combustibly." - 11/13/2014 Rolling Stone


"THE HOMESMAN is both a captivating western and a meticulous, devastating feminist critique of the genre." - 11/13/2014 New York Times


3 stars out of 5 -- "[Jones has] fashioned another handsome Western..." - 11/14/2014 Empire


"Tommy Lee Jones’ THE HOMESMAN is a stark and beautiful and bleak portrait of life in the Midwest in the 1850s." - 11/20/2014 Chicago Sun-Times


4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] film that puts a fresh, female spin on the western....Swank’s performance is every bit as potent as her Oscar-winning turns, but it’s Jones who takes top honours, as a rascal who finds a spark of decency within." - 11/17/2014 Total Film


"[T]he story's twists and emphases are often unexpected, and the shape of the narrative overall fits no genre template." - 12/01/2014 Sight and Sound
