About the film:

A new Western from legendary filmmaker Clint Eastwood. Mike Milo, a one-time rodeo star and washed-up horse breeder, takes a job from an ex-boss to bring the man’s young son home from Mexico. Forced to take the backroads on their way to Texas, the unlikely pair faces an unexpectedly challenging journey, during which the world-weary horseman finds unexpected connections and his own sense of redemption.

About the filmmaker:

Acclaimed actor, director and producer Clint Eastwood built his career as an icon of American masculinity in westerns, gaining popularity during the 1960s series Rawhide and Sergio Leone’s “Dollars Trilogy” followed by starring roles in the Dirty Harry films. He has directed 39 features, including Mystic River, Letters from Iwo Jima and American Sniper, and has directed himself in Unforgiven, The Bridges of Madison County, Million Dollar Baby, and Gran Torino, among others. His numerous accolades include four Academy Awards, an AFI Life Achievement Award, and the Venice Film Festival’s Golden Lion award.

An adaptation of the 1975 novel by N. Richard Nash, the intimate, heartfelt Cry Macho was filmed by Eastwood at age 90 and confronts his “macho” legacy. Celebrating the film, Warner Bros. Pictures released a short tribute video to Eastwood’s singular career. Watch it here.
