  • Tommy Lee Jones tells how 'Homesman' got him back in the saddle

    Although he's best known as an actor, Tommy Lee Jones has taken some slick rides in the director's saddle. His 2005 neo-western, "The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada," richly dramatized the killing of a Mexican immigrant illegally in Texas, Jones'...
  • Hilary Swank: 'I choose characters who don't care about their wrinkle'

    Hollywood's a place where style trumps substance, where good looks are appreciated more than anything else. Hilary Swank defies that thinking with a vengeance. She's never worried about how she looks in a film; she's consumed by how much depth she can...
  • 'Homesman' surprising, beautiful and wonderfully strange

    It's been a while since we've received a memorable western. It's been a very long time since one was as unforgettable as "Unforgiven" or "True Grit." And one that is at once an 1850s feminist epic, a morbidly amusing prairie farce and a revisionist...
  • Reel Critics: A 'Horrible' use of Oscar winners

    "Horrible Bosses 2" is not about bosses, office work or 9 to 5 jobs. It's about a Marx Brothers-style farce with no grounding in reality. Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day reprise the characters from the original film. They bring likable...

    Tommy Lee Jones, Hilary Swank admire the feminism in 'Homesman' western
    To which part of calling "The Homesman" a "feminist western" would Tommy Lee Jones, its director, co-writer, co-producer and costar, be more likely to object? "It's not very meaningful," says Jones wearily. "I know what a western is; it's a movie that's...

    'The Homesman' gets lost on the way
    **1/2 (out of four) Food and fun are scarce in “The Homesman.” Yet unlike Christopher Nolan’s massively disappointing “Interstellar,” “Homesman” director/co-writer Tommy Lee Jones lends some urgency and sense...

  • Harsh land and raw, maddening emotion test 'The Homesman'

      Harsh land and raw, maddening emotion test 'The Homesman'
    There is a prescient shot that opens "The Homesman," the spare frontier drama starring Hilary Swank and Tommy Lee Jones. A flat stretch of Nebraska plain, a blanket of blue-gray sky, as if God himself had drawn a straight line between Heaven and Earth....
