10 years after a global economic collapse, a hardened loner pursues the men who stole his only possession, his car. Along the way, he captures one of the thieves' brother, and the duo form an uneasy bond during the dangerous journey.
A triumphant epic of survival and a tale of powerful womanhood and resistance against the unforgiving cruelty of a hell on earth. Our heroine is Liz (Dakota Fanning), carved from the beautiful wilderness, full of heart and grit, hunted by a vengeful Preacher (Guy Pearce) - a diabolical zealot and her twisted nemesis. But Liz is a genuine survivor; she's no victim - a woman of fearsome strength who responds with astonishing bravery to claim the better life she and her daughter deserve. Fear not. Retribution is coming.Written by
Director Martin Koolhoven had been preparing the movie for 5 years, and had invested some of his own money in it. A cancellation would mean that he would be financially ruined himself, and he would lose the rights to his own screenplay. When funding for the movie almost fell through at the eleventh hour, he had to go to the hospital with symptoms of a heart attack. Fortunately, it turned out to be a panic attack from all the stress. Koolhoven maintains that although it may have seemed in the media that making Brimstone was a living hell (also due to some last-minute cast replacements), once the biggest hurdles had been taken, he had the time of his life filming his dream project with a wonderful cast and crew. Moreover, he was extremely happy to be able to shoot scenes in Almeria, Spain, where his favorite movie Once Upon a Time in the West (1968) had been filmed as well. See more »
