Sinopsis

In the 1850s mid-West, Mary Bee is designated by church members to take 3 women who have lost their minds to a safe haven in Iowa. On the way, she saves the life of outlaw Briggs, a claim-jumper. He helps her in her mission, through perilous encounters and the harshness of the Frontier territory.

Por qué verla

Not since 1992’s Unforgiven has a western at once revived and furthered the waning genre. Tommy Lee Jones’ sublime The Homesman and its revelatory consideration of the white woman’s experience on the frontier, does just that. Starring Hilary Swank, Meryl Streep, James Spader, and Jones himself.

What makes The Homesman a western of great merit and substance isn’t its gorgeous window-dressings or sly subversions in iconography, but the emotional connection it manages to convey through its contemplative treatment of gender, longing and how the two consistently intertwine.

At times The Homesman suggests a John Ford adaptation of Waiting for Godot—the desolation is so extreme that it practically feels absurd. (The film is not without humor, though it’s humor of a very dark sort.) …As the protagonists near their final destination, The Homesman offers a critique of civilization that’s almost as pessimistic as its critique of frontier life, suggesting that in every corner of America there have always been more losers than winners.

I was impressed with how Jones’s uncomfortable mixing of tones in the first half of the film gave way to something more elegiac and evocative by the end. For much of its running time, The Homesman doesn’t quite seem to know where it’s going. But once it actually gets there, it attains a hardscrabble nobility.
