After being forced to sell his family ranch to developers, a financially strapped, but proud senior citizen, and his estranged grandson, find themselves targeted by drug dealers in search of a missing money bag.
Forced to give up his land and his only home, cantankerous Texas rancher Red Bovie isn't about to go quietly to the dismal trailer park that's all he can now afford, and instead goes off with his grandson Gally - son of his long-estranged son Jimmy - for one last wild and woolly adventure during a night in Old Mexico.Written by

When purportedly entering a Mexican border town across the Rio Grande from Texas, the overhead signs read "Bien Viaje Estado de Mexico" and "Bienvenidos al Estado de Morelos" which was obviously filmed at the border between these two states in central Mexico. See more »

Hey, J.T., how you doin', man. Everything go okay?
[standing in the road, shows what's in his grocery bag]
Bring it here.
Let me see some money first.
Look man, here's the money.

Now bring that stuff over here.

Once again, Robert Duvall delivers like few others can. The cast, story line and everything about the movie was grand. His co stars, while I was unfamiliar with them prior to this, were so outstanding. Movie drew me in right from the start and held me fully. Only disappointment I had with the movie was that it had to end. No matter what role Mr. Duvall plays, he is so very convincing and makes you feel like he is someone you know personally. The scenery was outstanding as well with such a great soundtrack. Its sad that ranchers and farmers alike face the devastation of losing the homes and land that they have worked so hard on due to the way things are these days. I will purchase it on DVD as soon as it is available and look forward to watching it time and time again. Instant classic.
