About the film 'The Homesman' (USA, 2014 / directed by Tommy Lee Jones) Wikipedia tells us: "The film shows the unsparingly harsh and difficult life of early settlers of the American Midwest in the 1850s. The Homesman has been called a 'feminist western'. Critics have noted that the lives of women during this time are rarely explored, as opposed to men, (...)."
I'm impressed by the story of Mary Bee Cuddy (played by Hilary Swank), the courageous and compassionate leading female character in The Homesman. A few thoughts of Hilary Swank about playing Mary Bee Cuddy you'll find here: http://www.filmjuice.com/hi...
Except for one, all photos in the video are stills from the film (btw: notice my choice for presenting them in ‘sepia big grain’), and most of them focus on Mary Bee Cuddy. I combine these shots with music by John Adams: Christian Zeal and Activity, as I tend to associate this piece of music with Cuddy’s character and outlook on life. IMHO John Adams‘ music and the stills from The Homesman offer a good combination of auditive and visual Americana. I hope you’ll grasp that unmistakeable Americana-feel as you watch the video.
