Film Discussion: Two Acclaimed Western Movies


We will discuss two movies that were made 65 years apart and tell  two very different stories of  life in the West.  

The Searchers
 (1956) - In this revered Western, Ethan Edwards, played by John Wayne, returns home to Texas after the Civil War. When members of his brother's family are abducted by Comanches, he vows to track down his surviving relatives and bring them home. The cast also includes Natalie Wood and Vera Miles.
It is available to rent on Amazon Prime. 

The Power of the Dog (2021) In this Oscar-likely movie,  a domineering but charismatic rancher wages a war of intimidation on his brother's new wife and teenage son, until secrets about him come to light. The movie stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons. It is available to stream on Netflix.
