First Trailer for A24's 'The Ballad of Lefty Brown' Starring Bill Pullman
"Chase down Eddie's killer, then bring him back." A24 has debuted a trailer for western drama The Ballad of Lefty Brown, from filmmaker Jared Moshe, which first premiered at the SXSW Film Festival this year. Bill Pullman stars as washed-up sidekick Lefty Brown, who watches his longtime friend/partner murdered before his eyes. He decides to go after the killer, rallying a group of people to support him, including an old, experienced gunhand and a young cowboy. The full cast includes Kathy Baker, Jim Caviezel, Tommy Flanagan, Diego Josef, and Joe Anderson, with an appearance by Peter Fonda as Lefty's murdered friend. This looks damn good, a moody revenge western with some real grit. Pullman seems great as always.
Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for Jared Moshe's The Ballad of Lefty Brown, from A24's YouTube:
Aging sidekick Lefty Brown (Bill Pullman) has ridden with Eddie Johnson (Peter Fonda) his entire life. But when a rustler kills Eddie, Lefty is forced from his partner’s shadow and must confront the ugly realities of frontier justice. The Ballad of Lefty Brown is both written and directed by American filmmaker Jared Moshe, director of the western film Dead Man's Burden previously and some producing work as well. This premiered at the SXSW Film Festival, and also played at the Nantucket, Milwaukee, Zurich, Mill Valley, Tacoma, Woodstock, and Chicago Film Festivals this year. A24 will release Jared Moshe's The Ballad of Lefty Brown in select theaters starting on December 15th this fall. Thoughts on this? Who wants to see it?

Happy to see Jimmy C. back in the same exact saddle as his PERSON OF INTEREST character.

Cool title, but it's a damn shame they gave away the whole movie in the trailer. That poster is pretty cool too. Was hoping this was a modern take on the Spaghetti western. And all of these actors need more work. What a stellar cast.

Worth just for the cast. And maybe there will be something more in it ...

"It's money. It makes fools of men." Looks like an honest modern take on classic westerns. Deserves to be checked out for that alone, nevermind the fine cast.

Funny, just watched Bone Tomahawk yesterday. Pullman's character reminds me of Jenkins' "back-up deputy" character Chicory. Damn fine cast, could be good.
