Tommy Lee Jones has a wry, dry character -- rich and deep as unwateredopen plains of the Americas. He's transferred his particularpersonality power to the story of The Homesman. He's successfullycreated a fine work of "auteur cinema" (much as I personally think thisform rarely exists).The Homesman i...
I need to get something off my chest: I'm not a fan of Tommy Lee Jones.I find him limited in range, much the same in most roles and, worst ofall, he inexplicably won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for TheFugitive, thus depriving Pete Postlethwaite for In the Name of theFather, Leonardo Di Caprio fo...
The Homesman, written and directed and starring Tommy Lee Jones tellsthe story of Mary Bee Cuddy (Hilary Swank) a spinster who takes on theresponsibility of bringing three insane women to Iowa where they can betaken care of.She saves or spares the life of George Briggs (Tommy Lee Jones) andenlists h...
The story behind this movie is so engaging that it is a perfectplatform for good performances and none of the players disappoints.Hilary Swank has never been better: tough but kind-hearted, determinedbut vulnerable. Tommy Lee Jones is at his salty, rough-edged,believable best. Since Mr. Jones also d...
This is a great movie which in its offbeat dramaturgy depicts theunpredictability, pointlessness and hardships of life. And it does sowith an underlying sense of humor which is almost Kafkaesque andabsurd. Don't let the settings fool you –this is not a western flick,it is timeless, and it serve...
'THE HOMESMAN': Four and a Half Stars (Out of Five)Tommy Lee Jones directed, co-wrote and stars in this western/drama film(set in the 1850s midwest) about a 'spinster' and a 'drifter'transporting three women, driven mad by the hardships of the time,across the country. It costars Hilary Swank, Mirand...
I learned something today. Luc Besson - the Producer - may give ustremendous movies when he dares to, when he is in "the mood" for. Thisone is the perfect example, at a billion miles away from the usualgarbage Junk stuff Besson usually gives us. Crap factory from EuropaCorp. This film is a masterpie...
December 19, 2014A homesman is someone tasked to bring people back to their homes. Inthis film, the people that needed safe transport are three mentally-disturbed women. Mary Bee McCuddy, a plain but hardy spinster,volunteered to be their homesman. Along the way, she rescues a old manThomas Briggs f...
Given that three women in the Nebraska Territory all went raving mad atthe same time (maybe it was the Danish rye bread), this tale grabs usimmediately with its starkness, bitterness and coldness, not to mentionlack of compassion. Tommy Lee Jones as a drunken old reject is right onthe mark. Hillary ...
I really liked the western "The Homesman", but I strongly suspect thatit won't be to everyone's taste. And I will admit that even this diehard fan of westerns didn't find it a perfect movie. The opening thirtyminutes of the movie, for one thing, are somewhat confusing with somedetails, though eventu...
Homesman left me with some mixed feelings. I really liked the idea andtheme of this movie, but certain aspects of the storytelling are justridiculous.The story takes place in 1850s Nebraska where a small community ofhomesteaders decides to send three mad women to a home in Iowa. MaryBee Cuddy (Hilar...
Greetings again from the darkness. We have come to expect our Westernsto be filled with stoic heroes and nasty villains, but this filmdelivers a pious, yappy leading lady paired with a selfish, no frillsdrifter. Based on the 1988 novel from Glendon Swarthout, it's also thesecond directorial outing f...
The Homesman, about a 31 year old (un-married/childless) woman (HilarySwank) who takes up the challenge of bringing three crazed women acrossthe Nebraska plains over five weeks with the help of a deserter-drifterleft for dead (Jones), is in some ways meant to be a real FeministWestern (with a capita...
Hilary Swank and Tommy Lee Jones give terrific performances here, butbe prepared to witness some incredibly bleak scenes. Do we really needto see in graphic detail a mother throwing her baby down an outhousehole (a scene I'm still thinking about a day after viewing), a manforcing himself upon his wi...
The Homesman represents a comeback of a movie genre, long forgotten bythe public and hence the studios (or is it the other way around ??!!) –the western.In this case, out the ordinary duplicity: good guy vs bad guy, we havea story that portrays the difficulties of the relationships of thefirst ...
I pity you dull giants of royalty. You're really spoiling yourauthoritarianism. The Homesman is a beautiful movie. Tommy Lee Jones is what everybodyexpects him to be (especially when it's a western). He can be betterbut not less, no, not a chance. Hilary Swank? I've always loved heracting; I mean wh...
Three married women will be transported to a hospital in Iowa fortreatment for their loss of mental capacity. Their husbands agree withthis as they are helpless to help their wives as Pioneer life has takenits toll on them and they can no longer cope in this stark, anddesolate country consisting of ...
My mother was born in a sod house on the prairie of North Dakota and mygrandmother was the town mid-wife and abortionist. Homesteading washard and demanding and Tommy Lee Jones has captured the the gut-levelstruggle that came with 160 acres and the nearest neighbor five or tenmiles away. It drove th...
I enjoy a good western but it would not be fair to this Tommy Lee Jonesproduction to classify it as such without emphasizing the film is morethan just a wagon trail journey of two unlikely characters across therough and unforgiving western terrain. No, it is the story of twounlikely characters, a si...
I read a review that said one of the main characters kills herselfbecause either A: she had sex and didn't enjoy it . Or B: she had sexand enjoyed it so much she couldn't handle it. I stopped reading midway through that sentence. Can people really be that blind and stupid?She killed herself because ...
Director/Star/Screenwriter Tommy Lee Jones Takes a Major Chance withthis Unusual Western Tale About Desperation and Insanity on the HarshNebraskan Plains in Americas Formative Years. It Seems, by the Movie'sBomb at the Box Office it was a Chance Not Worth Taking.Too Bad. It is One of Those Gritty, A...
This movie reminded me how pathetic and stupid the human male animalcan be and still is. And worse, it once again begged of me thequestion, "has anything changed, really?" The cynical part of me saysno. Men's hatred and oppression of women is just more hidden now, moreinstitutionalized and more pass...
I love a dark and bleak movie, but I also generally like a little bitof sunlight, a speck of redemption. Alas, there is almost nothing here.The cast list is the most impressive part of this film.Women driven mad, the hardship of frontier life, Hillary Swank savescrusty old Tommy Lee Jones. The best ...
Many Potential Spoilers! First, this movie was very good for its torrents of highly excitingstories, for keeping a consistent, distant perspective on events, andfor the dramatic performances of the lead performers.Second, here I just address some technical questions about plot,questions that do not ...
I liked the cast, the music and the cinematography. I could have likedthe story but I felt that the writer opted for shock-drama rather thancontinued character development . We all understand that life is notalways wonderful, people are not always good and bad things do happen.I am aware of that eve...
