Slow West

✮ 2015 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize Winner ✮ 

Set in 19th century Colorado but undeniably European in sensibility, SLOW WEST tells the story of sixteen-year-old Jay Cavendish as he travels from Scotland to Colorado in pursuit of his lost love.

Quickly confronted by the dangers of the American frontier, he teams up with a mysterious traveler named Silas, who agrees to protect him – for a price. Jay’s quest will be one of double-crossing, violence and peril as the guileless adolescent learns that the West takes no pity, least of all on the innocent.

John Maclean / 2015 / 84 minutes / English / USA/New Zealand
