Details Release Date: Sep 26, 2006; DVD Release Date: Sep 26, 2006; Movie Rated: R; Genres: Drama, Romance, Western; With: Edward Norton; 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.''
