It is a story of love, loss and redemption. The acting by Tommy Lee Jones and Robert Duvall is top notch, Duvall steals every scene he's in. The production values are motion picture quality, the direction is never sloppy and the pace moves along at a fast paced clip. The musical score is beautiful.

It is a wonderful movie for fans of the Western Genre and NON fans alike.
