Cannes Preview 2014: Tommy Lee Jones’ The Homesman

It’s almost ten years since Tommy Lee Jones’ acclaimed directorial debut, ‘The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada’, competed for the Palme d’Or and left the Croisette with wins for best actor and screenplay.  His follow up, another Western with Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp producing, has a pioneer woman making a precarious journey during the mid-18th century in the spirit – perhaps – of Kelly Reichardt’s Meek’s Cutoff.  Hilary Swank’s performance in the lead role is already attracting a buzz.

We reviewed it recently and loved it giving the app a top notch 10/10
