Opis

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.

Nasza opinia

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.

Jones’ visual style is simple and clean, and cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto finds some gorgeous John Ford touches; people shown in black silhouette through barn doorways, or house doorways, with the vast bright landscape beyond, a clear demarcation between interior and exterior, displaying the individual against the sheer size of the land out there.

The longer it goes, the clearer it is that Jones has got hold of something sharp about the West. This leads to a knockout of an ending, in which Briggs becomes the visual embodiment of a famous piece of American folk art, except that now we know the bitterness and loss behind the jolly image. A series of graves—desecrated, ransacked, unmarked—has led to Briggs’s moment of rude hilarity, and Jones won’t let us forget it.
