We’re thrilled to announce a complete re-design of the American Cinematheque website. See The New Site Now >
2003, Buena Vista Pictures, 139 min, USA, Dir: Kevin Costner

Retired gunslinger Charley Waite (Kevin Costner) is forced to return to violence when the cattle crew he has formed with old friend Boss Spearman (Robert Duvall) is threatened by enemies who endanger not only Waite’s way of life but his new romance with Sue Barlow (Annette Bening). Kevin Costner’s return to the Western genre delivers the traditional satisfactions of a classic and the audacious surprises of a true original, as it blends romance, adventure and history to explore profound adult issues without sacrificing entertainment value in the process.
