In 1890s Nebraska, 31-year-old spinster Mary Bee Cuddy (Hilary Swank) teams up with a claim-jumping scalawag (Tommy Lee Jones) to transport three women driven insane by the hardships of the frontier back east to Iowa.

The unlikely pair is faced with all the challenges of the American West, including bandits, rapists and many other dangers roaming the untamed desert.

  • 2 stars "Was an ok movie and Hilary Swank and Tommy Lee Jones as always were awesome in the movie, but for me the movie just did not make a ton of sense really. I understood the premise, but wasn't entirely happy with the way the movie progressed (even though I understood why) and the ending. It was kinda blah. If it wasn't for the acting I could care less about the movie."
