  • This beautifully crafted film intrigues as a story never told before and ratchets up dramatic interest through a succession of unexpected turns. show more

  • Never mind the awfulness of the three madwomen being relentlessly mad, or the silliness of their journey’s logistics; not for a moment do you believe that this grievously afflicted trio actually inhabits what amounts to a small, rickety and unadorned paddy wagon. What’s definitively awful is the spectacle of unrestrained vanity. show more

  • At a certain point, The Homesman will take you by surprise. By the end, a ferry ride across the Missouri River, it will take your heart. show more
