Description

It’s been a while since we had a great revisionist western, but the wait is over—Christian Bale’s entry into the genre has arrived, and it’s one that will stay with you. Bale plays a racist US Officer ordered against his will to safely escort a Cheyenne chief (Wes Studi) and his family back to their home in Montana. Their travel through hostile territory is beset by numerous problems, including the arrival of a beautiful woman whose family was just slaughtered (Rosamund Pike, Gone Girl). Director Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart) brings together an impressive cast that also includes Ben Foster and Timothée Chalamet for this stark, powerful look at how shared histories of divisive hatred make reconciliation so difficult to achieve.
