You’ll be thrilled as Palme d’Or winner KEN LOACH moves away from his usual kitchen-sink style to bring you a Hollywood extravaganza based on a classic tale of betrayal and revenge from the Old West.
All the troops of the Governor of Missouri (Gordon Brown) have failed to quash the notorious outlaws of the Galloway Gang. While the press denounce him as an enemy of the people, the legendary George Galloway’s sallies against the railroads, the banks and profiteering landlords have made him a folk hero to the oppressed sharecroppers of Bethnal Green. Galloway seems to be invincible. Or is he?
The outlaw leader has not reckoned on the possibility of betrayal from within his gang. Our drama follows gunman John Rees, who has long been a close follower of Galloway and even served in his personal guard. But recently Rees has become disgruntled by Galloway hogging the limelight, and feels he is not getting his fair share of the spoils. The tense psychodrama mounts as Rees wrestles with his better judgement. Will he screw up the courage to gun down his leader in cold blood? And will Galloway be too caught up in his own legend to see the danger coming?
