This is Natalie Portman and Noah Emmerich's second film together. Their first film was Beautiful Girls (1996), almost twenty years prior when Portman was in her mid-teens and Emmerich was in his early '30s. They play husband and wife in this film. See more »
When Dan Frost first meets Colin McCann in his office, there is a close-up shot of Ewan McGregor's face with a white liquid visible below his mustache. Presumably the glue used to affix it to his face. See more »

I had high hopes for this film because the lead is a woman. But I was so very disappointed. This western story has been done to death and putting a woman as the hero did not help. I saw nothing that I have not seen before. I was not impressed by Portman, with her oh so fake and over done southern accent. The first two flash backs were well placed, but the rest were not needed. The chemistry between the two was a flop.I now understand why I did not see much about this film before I watched it. For this lover of westerns it was a big let down. This film added nothing to the western genre. The 'big names' associated with this film did not help, they are better actors than this. Don't pay to see it wait until you can watch it for free.
