How in the hell did I miss this at the Sundance Film Festival? The movie is a western called Sweetwater. It stars January Jones and Ed Harris, and the story is set in 1886. It follows a young widow who risks everything to avenge her husband’s murder at the hands of a brutal sheep rancher. It's definitely a change of pace for Jones, in a good way. This could be a great role for her. It looks like a fantastic movie, and I'm kicking myself in the ass for not seeing it at Sundance because I love a good western.
Sarah, a former prostitute living on the New Mexico plains with her husband Miguel (Eduardo Noriega), who are both having to deal with overbearing landowner and religious fanatic Prophet Josiah (Jason Isaacs). When Josiah has Miguel killed, Sarah takes the law into her own hands on an intense journey of vengeance, with a renegade sheriff (Ed Harris) hot on her tail.
There's still no word on when the movie will get a U.S. release date, but it looks like a film worth keeping an eye on. Watch the trailer for yourself, and let us know if it's something you'd want to see.
