To me, this movie makes a significant impression as it is being in our age of fewer western films because it plays realistically like an old authentic cowboy story used to be and supplies good scenery and props too. Jane, played by Natalie Portman, is convincing in a woman's perspective living on a tough frontier land where there is not much law and even less sympathy. In her bravery she is not invulnerable, yet she is believable as she perseveres through hard and traumatic times. The man acting as her former love plays great in a role where the two people need each other. The storyline could almost be seen as a love triangle plot with some twists. This film raises the audience's spirit as pertaining to the quality of Jane's character and her former fiancée's. It is a well done, recent cowboy saga reminiscent of some classic early westerns. The film has a good dose of action but one needs to understand the fill-in information flashbacks to appreciate it properly even though the plot is easy to grasp. It has a bittersweet ending overall and I recommend the show to romance and western enthusiasts as well as older movie goers.
