Paying homage to classic westerns, the film stars Bill Pullman as cowboy Lefty Brown, who, after the gruesome murder of his partner, vows to find those responsible and avenge his friend’s death. The all-star cast also includes Oscar® nominee Peter Fonda, Golden Globe® winner Kathy Baker, and Jim Caviezel. The film premiered at the 2017 SXSW Film Festival to critical acclaim with Variety praising Pullman’s performance as one “that ranks with his career best.” Written and directed by Jared Moshé (Dead Man’s Burden), The Ballad of Lefty Brown Blu-ray is set in the vast, desolate plains of Montana, The Ballad of Lefty Brown is an ode to the traditional revenge western.
When cowboy Lefty Brown (Bill Pullman) witnesses the murder of his longtime partner—the newly-elected Senator Edward Johnson (Peter Fonda)—he strikes out to find the killers and avenge his friend’s gruesome death. Tracking the outlaws across the vast and desolate Montana plains, Lefty recruits a young gunslinger, Jeremiah (Diego Josef), and an old friend, a hard-drinking U.S. Marshall (Tommy Flanagan), to help deliver the men to justice.
After a gunfight with the outlaws leaves Jeremiah wounded, Lefty returns home with the names of Johnson’s killers only to find that he is being accused of his friend’s murder. With the tables turned, and with his friend in the governor’s mansion (Jim Caviezel) refusing to help, Lefty must evade the law and prove his innocence by exposing the powerful men ultimately responsible for Johnson’s death. A thrilling and action-packed Western, The Ballad of Lefty Brown is a story about loyalty, friendship, and the relentless pursuit of justice.
