Tommy Lee Jones and Hilary Swank whomp up a pair of strong, true-gritty performances as an alcoholic drifter and a frontier spinster trying to deliver a wagonload of mentally disturbed women to a hospital across the perilous Great Plains in the 1870s. The story – from a novel by Glendon Swarthout, adapted by Kieran Fitzgerald, Wesley A. Oliver, and director Jones – is a prime example of “new wave” western: surly and grubby, with no clear-cut heroic figures but with an ironic, Wild West sense of morality. It’s cut from the same cloth as Jones’ 2005 The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, and it’s highly recommended. Also with Grace Gummer, John Lithgow, Hailee Steinfeld, James Spader, and Evan Jones (122 min.).
