A bit slow, but true to the period, The Homesman portrays the strength of a woman and the brutality of pioneer days. The cinematography makes up for the pace. There are many beautiful shots in this film. The story is brutally honest about the circumstances of the times and deals with 3 women who have lost their minds in response to the difficult situations. Many disturbing scenes make this one tough to watch at times. An OK rental.
