Hi-Lo Country, The (R)

synopsis

Acclaimed director Stephen Frears helms the film version of the admired novel that for years Sam Peckinpah tried to get made. The film is an intimate story of the enduring bond of friendship between two hard-living men, set against a sweeping backdrop: the American West, post-World War II, in its twilight. Pete and Big Boy are masters of the prairie, but ultimately face trickier terrain: the human heart. Patricia Arquette co-stars as the woman who will eventually come between the two men.
