At several points throughout the film, starting from the first town scene, House Sparrows are heard calling in the background. However this species was not introduced to the US from Europe until 1852, and only then in New York. See more »

A new take on an old genre with phenomenal performances
A beautiful looking film, cinematography was on point. It took a little while to get things going but the last half made up for it. An original idea for a Western, and I love a good Western so I throughly enjoyed it. All the performances were great and it was genuinely touching, but there was just something missing that failed to elevate this movie from very good to great.
