THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD

by Andrew Dominik
 

kanal(2007 - 160 minutes - Biography | Crime | Drama | History | Western) An American epic revisionist Western film written and directed by Andrew Dominik. Adapted from Ron Hansen's 1983 novel of the same title, the film dramatizes the relationship between Jesse James (Brad Pitt) and Robert Ford (Casey Affleck), focusing on the events that lead up to the titular killing.

Taking place in Missouri in the early 1880s, the film dramatizes the last seven months in the life of famed outlaw Jesse James, beginning with the Blue Cut train robbery of 1881 and culminating in his assassination at the hands of Robert Ford the following April. In the time between these two fateful events, the young and jealous Ford befriends the increasingly mistrustful outlaw, even as he plots his demise.

Starring Brad Pitt, Casey Affleck, Sam Shepard, Sam Rockwell, and Mary-Louise Parker. Nominated for best cinematography and supporting actor.
