    Synopsis


    The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada
    Veteran screen star Tommy Lee Jones makes his directorial debut with the fractured tale of murder and injustice on the U.S.-Mexico border scripted by Amores Perros and 21 Grams screenwriter Guillermo Arriaga. Mike Norton (Barry Pepper) is a fresh-faced Border Patrol officer in Cibolo County, TX, whose dedication to his new job leaves his lonely wife, Lou Ann (January Jones), with little to do but spend her days at the local diner, where she strikes up a friendship with waitress Rachel (Melissa Leo). Despite her own status as a married woman, Rachel is unfulfilled in her marriage and is intimately involved with both rugged rancher Pete Perkins (Tommy Lee Jones) and local sheriff Belmont (Dwight Yoakam). Soon after Pete hires Mexican illegal Melquiades Estrada (Julio César Cedillo) as a ranch hand, the growing bond between the pair is suddenly shattered when, in a moment of panic on a routine patrol, Mike hastily guns down the innocent Melquaides. When an enraged Pete learns that Mike has unceremoniously buried the illegal immigrant in an unmarked desert grave and local authorities opt to overlook the case, he kidnaps the crooked lawman and sets out to ensure that justice is served with or without the involvement of the local police force. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      This movie plays on the two sides of the coin that can be the human experience, one side good, the other not. A young man and his gorgeous wife both become entwined with the namesake of the movie,Melquiades Estrada. The boredome for the small town she feels, coupled with the job frustration the he feels, throws them both together with Tommy Lee Jones character who is best friends with Melquiades Estrada. The saga plays out in a rugged US bordertown, and ends with a burial in Mexico. Who's? Get the movie and find out!

      This is the best movie that I watched, because talk about very good relationship between frends, no diferences by race, color, religion or somethin like that, if you want to see the best movie on the last years you must see Three Bourials of Melquiades Estarada and probably your life will change for ever. Another diferent form to see this life.
