We’ve got a new trailer for the January Jones and Ed Harris western Sweetwater for you to check out! I think this looks like a great flick, but then I think I like westerns a little more than most people. The film is set in 1886, and the story follows a young widow who risks everything to avenge her husband’s murder at the hands of a brutal sheep rancher.
This is a very different role for Jones, but I think it looks better than most of the roles she’s been involved with. The movie premiered at Sundance earlier this year, and unfortunately I missed it. Here’s the synopsis,
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.
