Q&A Attendees *subject to change: Bill Pullman, Jared Moshè
In what is a uniquely American genre, director Jared Moshe takes us back to the world of cowboys and cattle barons. However, this time it's not the hero, but his sidekick in the spotlight. After Eddie Johnson (Peter Fonda) is elected Montana senator, he appoints his bumbling pal Lefty (Bill Pullman) to take over his ranch. Everyone, including Eddie's wife (Kathy Baker) thinks this is a bad decision. When things take an unexpected turn, and Eddie is gunned down, Moshe spins a stirring and compassionate yarn, as Lefty, thrown into an unaccustomed position, proves his loyalty, turning from clumsy sidekick into relentless avenger. Pullman's Lefty Brown is an inspiring character, simple, stubborn, with an invincible courage that carries the film by his masterful performance. An old-fashioned Western accentuated with a cinematic eye and attention to details, this is a story that never becomes old: that of undying loyalty of one man for another. — Ben F. Fischer
