The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

Buy Tickets

Presented by The Brattle and Jesse James Revival

Actor Casey Affleck in Person for Q+A!

(2007) dir Andrew Dominik w/Brad Pitt, Casey Affleck, Mary-Louis Parker, Sam Rockwell, Jeremy Renner, Sam Shepard, Garret Dillahunt, Paul Schneider [160 min; 35mm]
An exemplary modern western, THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES features a subtle, charismatic performance from Brad Pitt as Jesse James but the film really belongs to Casey Affleck as Robert Ford, a sycophantic wannabe outlaw who ingratiated his way into the James gang and, eventually,killed his idol. The slow pace of the film often seems at odds with Affleck’s tightly-wound character but, as the tensions within the gang mount, the power of his performance becomes clear. A beautiful, well-acted piece of filmmaking thatmust be seen on the big screen to be fully appreciated.
