Recasting the Western with a feminist slant (as written and directed by men) this was an engrossing movie. Great acting, compelling characters and the movie balanced funny with tragic. However, there was a thing that happened in Act 3 that I didn’t at all find believable,* and which sunk the whole film.
Cost: free due to gift card
Where watched: Regal Fox Tower with S. North.
*If you’ve seen it, let me know, we’ll talk.

(I went with version three because it had Hilary Swank in front.)

I've never heard of it, will probably never see it (not big on westerns), and am now terribly curious as to what you didn't find believable. So feel free to tell me. Also, I'm sorry it ruined the movie for you. I hate it when that happens.
Drat! It had so much going for it and then… Sorry I didn't see it so we could discuss.
