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.
