Down in the Valley

Genre: Western, Drama, Romance; Starring: Edward Norton, Rory Culkin, David Morse, Evan Rachel Wood; Director: David Jacobson; Author: David Jacobson; Runtime (in minutes): 125; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: THINKFilm

The Western gets a fresh rinsing in writer-director David Jacobson’s Down in the Valley, about would-be cowboy Harlan Carruthers (Norton) in the San Fernando Valley. Harlan’s doomed relationship with Wood’s Tobe drives the narrative, but at the expense of making her little brother (Rory Culkin) a vivid character.

EXTRAS
The apple doesn’t fall far from the screenplay: Jacobson appears in a Q&A in a snap shirt and boots and says the characters of Tobe and her brother are ”very much like me and my sister growing up.”
