Bill Pullman seeks justice in The Ballad of Lefty Brown trailer

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

Although westerns aren't exactly flooding theaters as they once did, we have been fortunate enough to to receive a handful of excellent western flicks in recent years, and THE BALLAD OF LEFTY BROWN may very well have the potential to join the illustrious ranks of TRUE GRIT, THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD, 3:10 TO YUMA, and more as the recently released trailer for the old-fashioned western looks mighty promising.

Starring Bill Pullman, THE BALLAD OF LEFTY BROWN finds an old cowboy seeking to avenge the death of his longtime partner (Peter Fonda), but Lefty is no hero, and not everyone believes that he has what it takes to get the job done. THE BALLAD OF LEFTY BROWN also stars Jim Caviezel, Kathy Baker, and Tommy Flanagan.

The official synopsis for THE BALLAD OF LEFTY BROWN:

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.

THE BALLAD OF LEFTY BROWN will debut on DirecTV on November 9, 2017 and will hit theaters on December 15, 2017.
