Set in 1963 in Texas, Academy Award-winner Kevin Costner ("The Bodyguard," "Dances with Wolves") plays an escaped convict, who, in the course of eluding the Texas Ranger pursuing him, Academy Award-winner Clint Eastwood ("Unforgiven," "Million Dollar Baby"), takes a hostage -- a fatherless young boy who has led a strictly constrained and unhappy life. Together, the con and boy develop a unique friendship, enabling both of them to experience some of the pleasures missing from their childhoods. But their life on the run is on a collision course with the reality of their situation and the laws of a very imperfect world. Co-starring Golden Globe-winner Laura Dern ("Jurassic Park") and Linda Hart("Get Shorty," "Tin Cup"). Variety calls this a "lean, finely chiseled work...a somber, subtly nuanced study" and The New York Times calls this "Majestic, eloquent, profoundly moving. The high point of Mr. Eastwood's directing career" and calls Costner's performance "absolutely riveting...an overdue reminder of why he is a film star of such magnitude." Directed by Clint Eastwood.
