A former rodeo star, with a small time life, unknowingly starts a rapport with a young man who is responsible for the violence that has suddenly gripped his small town. Every character from his loved ones to his business patrons, plays a part in the unravelling of this community. Our aged hero must face his relationships of past and present to come up against this unpredictable predator.
... to regular people and sad music makes us cry...
Sorry, but no, it's just not enough. Did I care about the characters? No, why would I? There's little to no character development and they're just not terribly interesting or compelling in any way. Nebulous relationships, an insurance fraud scheme, a few assorted scumbags, a latent hero who somehow dispels his inner demons and emotional funk with a final heroic act in the end does not a great movie make.
Dark skies, dark interiors, dingy settings, dismal situations I understand are compelling to some, but it's just not enough.
