Slow West

Slow West 550“Impeccably crafted … has a distinctly Coen-esque flavor in its mix of sly intelligence, bleak humor and unsettling violence … a wry American counterhistory.” –Variety

A young Scot (Kodi Smit-McPhee) travels to the American West in search of his love, and is rescued by a mysterious man (the Oscar-nominated Michael Fassbender) who, secretly, also is looking for the same girl.  John Maclean’s smart, thrilling, darkly funny first film reorients the Western with a sharp eye and an outstanding cast. Winner, Grand Jury Prize, Sundance Film Fest. (U.K.-New Zealand, 2015, 84m, digital, A24)
