The Homesman ist ein Filmdrama vor der Kulisse eines Westerns von Tommy Lee Jones aus dem Jahr 2014. Tommy Lee Jones war auch am Drehbuch beteiligt, das auf dem gleichnamigen Roman von Glendon Swarthout aus dem Jahr 1988 basiert, und übernimmt neben Hilary Swank eine der beiden Hauptrollen.
Mary Bee Cuddy, the frontier spinster heroine of The Homesman played by Hilary Swank. Two men refuse to marry her, partly because she's too "plain." While not movie-star gorgeous, she's an average nice-looking woman, not unattractive by real-world standards.
At one point the duo encounter a group of Mexican cowboys watching American soap operas on a television hooked up to their pickup truck. The program is the same episode that was airing when Norton had sex with his wife in their trailer earlier in the movie. Norton is visibly shaken and is given half a bottle of liquor by one of the cowboys.
