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.
