The Homesman: Tommy Lee Jones in Another Offbeat Western (Review/Trailer)

The Homesman, written and directed by Hollywood A Lister Tommy Lee Jones, is another offbeat western by the man who brought the world The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, although that was a modern day western and his most recent offering is actually a period piece. Set back in the days of sod houses and farmers trying to survive the harsh Nebraska winter on the plains, the film is a western mainly due to its locale and time. Jones directs the feature and co-wrote the screenplay with Kieran Fitzgerald and Wesley A. Oliver based on the book written by The Shootist author Glendon Swarthout.

  1. I never did do a review of the Homesman – which was surely a different Western type movie – but pretty good. Tommy Lee knows his way around Westerns. And has proven to be a pretty good Director as well.

    1. As much as I adore Tommy Lee Jones in Westerns, this one just did not ring my bell that much. Still entertaining, but with Swank and Jones in it, this was a film I wanted to love….
