Two desperate brothers -- one a divorced father (Chris Pine), the other a hard-living ex-con (Ben Foster) -- commit a string of bank robberies in order to raise the money needed to protect their family farm from foreclosure. Meanwhile, an aging sheriff (Jeff Bridges) tracks the heists in an attempt to hunt down those responsible. This crime drama was written by Taylor Sheridan (Sicario) and directed by David Mackenzie (Starred Up).~Daniel Gelb
Absolute classic... as good as a film gets in every facet. Amazing casting throughout led by Bridges, Pine, and absolutely riveting Ben Foster. The screenplay written by Tyler Sheridan is beyond impeccable in every detail. The perfectly detailed plot, character development, story arc and scene set ups are pure craftsmanship and then the dialogue which is intelligent, observant, funny, and on . No where near enough words to applaud it. Best screenplay in years and one for the ages and the Librarynof Congress collection.
This is a hidden gem of a Masterpiece in the movie section. A beautifully told story that makes you feel for the problems the brothers face. We all love to see a good movie; and this movie makes you feel as if this took place in real life makes it even better.
This is a real life drama. An interesting true story, Anyone who’s ever had money troubles could understand.
If you’ve ever been to Texas and experienced the country culture, you would completely understand the story in this movie and find it very enjoyable to watch.
Certainly, no one should try this at home!
