Nov 14, 2014 · The West, as seen in "The Homesman," is an unforgiving place, with flashes of stark and nightmarish beauty. Three women have lost their minds in "The Homesman," but honestly, everyone you meet in the film is slightly crazy, the homesman most of all. Nobody is a pillar of mental health.
The Homesman is a dark, complex story of gender issues and changing conventions on the frontier, and in an era that sees this genre fading, Jones has made a Western winner.
Overall, "The Homesman" is a great little movie gem, but it is not for everyone. Filled with amazing extended cameos, great acting by two main and 3 side characters, great and not traditional writing, superb cinematography and very solid and confident directing - this sometimes weird movie will definitely win over you, if you are tired from all superhero and predictable action movies.
Starring: David Dencik, Grace Gummer, Hilary Swank, James Spader, John Lithgow, Miranda Otto, Sonja Richter, Tim Blake Nelson, Tommy Lee Jones. Summary: When three women living on the edge of the American frontier are driven mad by harsh pioneer life, the task of saving them falls to the pious, independent-minded Mary Bee Cuddy (Hilary Swank). Transporting the women by covered wagon to Iowa, she soon realizes just how daunting the journey will be, and employs a low-life drifter, George.

Nov 20, 2014 · The Homesman review – Tommy Lee Jones isn’t quite what a feminist looks like 3 out of 5 stars. Hailed as a ‘feminist western’ by some, The Homesman only is up to a point, writes Mark Kermode
The Homesman is full of striking imagery: the locked, coffin-like coach; fresh new buildings in hardscrabble dirt; a disturbed grave on a gnarly plain. Jones is also wise enough to step into the supporting role, giving Swank room to do her best stuff as Mary Bee, an extraordinary woman who's as strong as a man yet full of yearning and forever giving more than she gets.
