In the late 1800's, a beautiful former prostitute is trying to build an honest life with her husband in the rugged plains of New Mexico. When she catches the eye of a sadistic and powerful religious leader, her life is violently turned upside down. She embarks on a bloody course of vengeance with the assistance of a renegade sheriff who has pretty violent tendencies of his own.Written by
During the scene where Prophet Josiah (Jason Isaacs) is walking into church followed by the others to give mass after being confronted by Miguel (Eduardo Noriega) about his sheep. The suns actual lighting coming in through the entrance of the Chapel created the natural rays coming through the doors. The crew got lucky when filming the shot and hurried to start rolling the cameras to capture the actors walking in front of the sunset for the beautiful, natural lighting. See more »

Interesting script, sharp, well written dialog. Several subtle "funnies" along the way. Such a delightful departure from his "norm" and excellent performance by Ed Harris. I liked this dandy Colombo with a harmlessly psychotic twist. Amy Madigan almost stole the show with one short scene, played with so few words, very, very well. Some of the sharp dialog could have been delivered better by January Jones, Bless her heart, but a lead role like this can be exhausting, I'm sure. Hope she grows into them, though, because she was easy to watch. A cast of characters keeps things interesting, And one is always watching for twists and turns. Would have been interesting to discover her situation in the end. Seemed to end somewhat abruptly without closer in that area.
