Almost Arthouse #30: ‘The Homesman’ & ‘The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada’

the homesman

Our first episode since July (we know, we’re terrible) brings on discussion of two Tommy Lee Jones directorial efforts: First up is the director’s latest (which premiered at Cannes), The Homesman, which deftly tackles the rough and tough lives of pioneer women and a drunken drifter in 1850. The film stars Jones himself, Hilary Swank, Meryl Steep, and James Spader. Last on the docket is the neo-western The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada (2005), starring Jones, Barry Pepper, January Jones, and Melissa Leo. Joining hosts Ty Landis and Tom Stoup for this week’s chat is The Film Stage’s Danny King.
