Storyline

Set in 1882, a mysterious fugitive seeks out his revenge on the person who landed him in prison. His tracking skills lead him to the quiet, peaceful town of Wichita, KS. The Cowtown is beginning the ascent from small farm village to a cross-cultural industrial metropolitan, which ultimately lends the fugitive and the mysterious drifter the backdrop they need to blend in with the changing landscape of the city. Jesse (Justin France), the drifter, takes up residence at a farmstead on the outskirts of the city and quickly develops relationships with the widow Ruth (Beth Wise) and the sisters Samantha (Karina Wolfe) and Mary (Reylynn Caster). What first appears like a colloquial family-upbringing unravels an underground crime syndicate living under the guise of the local business community.

Not Your Grandpa's Western
7 May 2014 | by curtandteresaSee all my reviews

WICHITA is not a traditional Western in any sense, but it is a testament to what independent film can be. It features a compelling story that both draws you in and unnerves you and characters with depth that you find yourself caring about. It also reminds us that there are extremely skilled actors outside of Hollywood with some outstanding performances.

This movie is not for the faint of heart and delivers some true "gut punches" at times, but for anyone interested in an exceptional tale of murder, revenge, and redemption, it truly delivers. This is a film to add to your personal collection as it can be watched repeatedly with nuances that are noticed only after the initial watching.
