Official Trailer for Thomas Bidegain's Modern Western 'Les Cowboys'
"How far would you go for family?" Cohen Media Group will be releasing the indie drama Les Cowboys starting this week in the US - check out the trailer and see the film. The modern French western is inspired by John Ford's masterpiece The Searchers, about a family that goes out desperately searching for a missing daughter taken from their prairie town in the east of France. John C. Reilly appears as "L'Américain", but it also stars François Damiens, Finnegan Oldfield, Agathe Dronne, Jean-Louis Coulloc'h, Ellora Torchia, Gilles Treton, Mounir Margoum, and many others. This looks quite impressive, and it looks like they end up somewhere in the Middle East, with excellent cinematography capturing all the locations.
Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Thomas Bidegain's Les Cowboys, direct from YouTube:
A vast prairie, a country and western gathering somewhere in the east of France. Alain is a central figure in this community. He’s dancing with his daughter Kelly, 16, as his wife and their young son, Kid, watch from the sidelines. But on this day, Kelly disappears, and the family falls apart. Alain embarks on a relentless search for his daughter, even though it costs him everything and takes him to some far-off places. Dark unsettling places, where his sole support is Kid, who sacrifices his youth to accompany his father on this seemingly endless quest. Les Cowboys is both written and directed by filmmaker Thomas Bidegain, a writer making his feature directorial debut. This first premiered at Cannes and TIFF last year. Cohen Media Group will open Les Cowboys in select theaters starting June 24th this summer. Interested?

Thought it was going to be some local cowboy drama, but was pleasantly surprised there. Always love John C Reilly.

Reilly is indeed a treasure. I hope, but don't expect, to get a lot of screen time with him.

Well, the director and co-writer of this film wrote both A Prophet and Rust and Bone. Two very gritty, authentic pieces so this film has my interest for sure. They/he sure makes better films than anyone is doing in this country, that's for sure. Kind of pathetic and embarrassing that our culture cannot produce pieces of work such as this that are more realistic and authentic rather than childish entertainments (Finding Dory...please!) for the masses.

That's some interesting trailer and it looks it's like about real characters which is always engaging to watch ...
