So this is written, directed, and starring legendary actor Tommy Lee Jones. That being the case with his experience in film this should be something to look out for. This isn't his first bout with directing (Sunset Limited & The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada), but it will probably be his most well known to date. So I decided to check it out for myself. The cast is incredible as well and the ... read more

Good subject, big trip, the moral relativism (such adventure with killings and the destruction of a hotel, the anticlimactic suicide of Swank, just to transport 3 crazy women)somehow collides with Lee Jones's whimsical character.

The Homesman is something of a mess, but in fractured moments it possess a stark, uncompromising poetry and a stellar pair of lead performances. The problem is, instead of just leaving well enough alone and pointing the camera at Hilary Swank and Tommy Lee Jones, Jones, who also directs, takes the narrative from wild turns of ambiguity and calamity into wild torrents of absurdity. There seems to b... read more

Three women who have been driven mad by pioneer life are to be transported across the country by covered wagon by the pious, independent-minded Mary Bee Cuddy, who in turn employs low-life drifter George Briggs to assist her.

An average movie

“I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a decent cast involved, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, to be honest, I turned out to be actually slightly disappointing. I mean, I have to admit it, the concept was interesting. Indeed, it was the first time I saw a movie focusing on the psychological damage following the harsh living conditions on the Frontier. Unfortunately, the first issue was that we never get to know these 3 women. Sure, they gave us a few flashback scenes explaining how and why they snapped at some point but we never got to see them before. To make things worse, they became more apathic and lifeless as the story moved forward so it was rather difficult to relate with them and care for what might happen to them. Still, they did somethi” read more

Slant's 100 Best Westerns of All Time (100 movies items)

"Just as Tommy Lee Jones’s contemporary western The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada displayed a surprising empathy for marginalized figures, so, too, does his belated follow-up, The Homesman, examine the tropes and mythos of the American West through the perspectives of those marginalized within it. The filmmaker and actor plays the titular character, but the true stars of the film are Hilary Swank as Mary Bee Cuddy and Grace Gummer, Miranda Otto, and Sonja Richter as the three mentally ill"

The Homesman Never Dies



Hilary Swank tries her darnedest to win another Oscar but fails. This is a thankless role, much like her character. What saves it is Tommy Lee Jones' unrestrained performance and nice cinematography.

The Homesman

“The Homesman is something of a mess, but in fractured moments it possess a stark, uncompromising poetry and a stellar pair of lead performances. The problem is, instead of just leaving well enough alone and pointing the camera at Hilary Swank and Tommy Lee Jones, Jones, who also directs, takes the narrative from wild turns of ambiguity and calamity into wild torrents of absurdity. There seems to be some internal struggles throughout The Homesman between regurgitating western totems and tropes with little thought to challenging them or their meanings, and giving the whole genre a feminist spin. Guess which one wins out in the end.   In its earliest moments, we believe that The Homesman will give voice to the women so often regulated to the sidelines or completely left out of the narrativ” read more

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- March 2015 (27 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 46min. First Viewing The movie hits often, but it's too scattered and episodic to have them come together in any meaningful way. The technical aspects are quite strong (cinematography, designs, etc.) and the cast is solid too, especially Swank, but the film ultimately rings hollow."
