‘The Ballad of Lefty Brown’ Trailer: Bill Pullman is Thirsty for Revenge

- Advertisement -

It always seems like a good time to reiterate the fact that Westerns are not dead and they aren’t going anywhere. they’re only getting stronger it seems. This week alone, we got a trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s Godless starring Jeff Daniels. Now, we have The Ballad of Lefty Brown, a straight-up revenge Western with another aging great who is in the middle of a resurgence: Bill Pullman.

This trailer looks like everything fans of the genre would expect. Check it out:

The synopsis is simple and to the point, just like the trailer indicates: “A coming of age Western for a 65-year old man.”

The Ballad of Lefty Brown debuted at this year’s SXSW, and gained proper buzz from said screening. It doesn’t look earth shattering in the plot department, but when it comes to these types of stories it’s not the story as much as what you do with it.

Peter Fonda also stars alongside Pullman, albeit for a just a little while it seems. Director Jared Moshe only has one other credit, the 2012 Western Dead Man’s Burden, to his name, so perhaps this one will be his breakout. A24 is involved, so it’s probably going to be great.

The Ballad of Lefty Brown opens December 15.
