A poor, widowed farmer with two children risks backsliding into the awful ways of his outlaw past when he decides to seek a bounty being offered for two men who slashed a prostitute. Eastwood plays the farmer, and Morgan Freeman and Gene Hackman costar.

A dark, hard film that thoroughly demolishes any romantic notions of the Old West. Won a slew of awards including the 1993 Academy Awards for best picture, best director, best supporting actor (Hackman), and best editing

Rated R.  Some strong scenes of violence.
