When three women living on the edge of the American frontier are driven mad by harsh pioneer life, the task of saving them falls to the pious, independent-minded Mary Bee Cuddy (Hilary Swank). Transporting the women by covered wagon to Iowa, she soon realizes just how daunting the journey will be, and employs a low-life drifter, George Briggs (Tommy Lee Jones), to join her. Together, they traverse the harsh Nebraska Territories marked by stark beauty, psychological peril and constant threat.

"The Homesman doesn't play things safe, and that's a welcome change."
- Sheila O'Malley, RogerEbert.com
"A grand, shocking saga of a movie, The Homesman is the kind they don’t make much anymore."
- Rex Reed, The New York Observer
"Jones tells this story with care and a lack of hurry, a pace to fit an age when people traveled no faster than two mules pulling a wagon could carry them. It’s “True Grit” and “The African Queen” with a moment of “Lawrence of Arabia,” period-perfect and a total immersion in this world."
- Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"The Homesman is both a captivating western and a meticulous, devastating feminist critique of the genre."
- A.O. Scott, NY Times
"Jones’ riveting Western is bleak and very nearly misanthropic, but it's also passionate, earthy, unpredictable, sensitive, and gloriously distinct."
- Inkoo Kang, TheWrap
"Tommy Lee Jones shows some true storytelling grit in this superbly watchable frontier western; he has a muscular and confident command of narrative, driving the plot onward with a real whip-crack, and easily handles the tonal swings between brutal shock, black comedy and sentimentality."
- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
"With The Homesman, Jones has produced an original and cantankerously offbeat western which becomes increasingly beguiling as the road stretches on."
- John Bleasdale, CineVue
