Keeping it going for the veteran actors, I like Sam Elliot's place in movies at this time, like his role as Blythe Danner's sexy love interest in I'll See You in My Dreams, but now he's doing a leading role for himself as an old western icon in a painful time in his life and trying to deal with it. Lucky for him he has Laura Prepon to help with those hard times.
I got to look up Elliot's old movies. I'm familiar with the silver haired Elliot and I'm wondering if there was something before this, (And does any of his work matter before Road House?)
Touching and slow. Also like how different the role of the Hero is than his role on the Netflix show, the Ranch, where he plays the father of Prepon's old That 70s Show cast mates Aston Kucther and Danny Masterson, Yet the role is still very very Sam Elliot.
Nice slow mellow pace, but still cool, making it great for Sam Elliot.
