TRAILER : The Ballad of Lefty Brown

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sv2khM97ylU

The Story

When cowboy Lefty Brown (Bill Pullman) witnesses the murder of his longtime partner — the newly-elected Senator Edward Johnson (Peter Fonda) — he strikes out to find the killers and avenge his friend’s gruesome death. Tracking the outlaws across the vast and desolate Montana plains, Lefty recruits a young gunslinger, Jeremiah (Diego Josef), and an old friend, a hard-drinking U.S. Marshall (Tommy Flanagan), to help deliver the men to justice.
After a gunfight with the outlaws leaves Jeremiah wounded, Lefty returns home with the names of Johnson’s killers only to find that he is being accused of his friend’s murder. With the tables turned, and with his friend in the governor’s mansion (Jim Caviezel) refusing to help, Lefty must evade the law and prove his innocence by exposing the powerful men ultimately responsible for Johnson’s death. A thrilling and action-packed Western, ‘The Ballad of Lefty Brown’ is a story about loyalty, friendship, and the relentless pursuit of justice.

Bill Pullman received the 'Excellence in Acting' award at Woodstock Film Festival for  'The Ballad of Lefty Brown'

October 14, 2017
by Mary Cochrane-McIvor


Bill Pullman received the "Excellence in Acting" award at the Woodstock Film Festival for his performance in the title role of "The Ballad of Lefty Brown".  Jared Moshe, Writer-Director of the film, nominated Pullman for the award and presented it to him.  Moshe wrote the part of Lefty Brown for Pullman.  When asked which of Pullman's film performances inspired him to make that choice, he said: "All of them."

"The Ballad of Lefty Brown" tells the story of a longtime sidekick who suddenly finds himself alone, betrayed and accused of murder when his partner is killed.  He struggles to find the wits, courage and guts to set things right in a brutal, changed world where no one thinks he is up to the job.

"The Ballad of Lefty Brown" was shot entirely on location in Montana. Pullman's wife Tamara, and children Maesa, Jack and Lewis are in the film.  "The Ballad of Lefty Brown" opens December 15 in limited release in the USA.
