Description

Opening theatrically on May 22, 2015 at the Film Society of Minneapolis St. Paul. For info and showtimes, click here.

Jay (Kodi Smit-McPhee) is a lovelorn 17-year-old Scottish aristocrat who travels to the American West at the close of the nineteenth century to track down his former lover. Confronted with the harsh realities of the frontier, he falls in with a rough and mysterious traveler named Silas (Michael Fassbender), who soon discovers that the focus of Jay’s affection has a price on her head.

With performances buoyed by Fassbender's enigmatic and modern take on the stoic Western hero, a wry sense of humor, and stunning panoramic cinematography, Slow West is a surreal journey through a gorgeous yet inhospitable landscape.
