THE BALLAD OF LEFTY BROWN
Montana Film Festival Roadshow Presents – The Ballad of Lefty Brown
Filmed entirely in Dillon and Ennis Montana, the star-studded new Western from writer/director Jared Moshé, The Ballad of Lefty Brown, comes home to Montana.
When cowboy Lefty Brown (Bill Pullman) witnesses the murder of his longtime partner – the newly-elected Senator Edward Johnson (Peter Fonda) – he strikes out to find the killers and avenge his friend’s gruesome death. Tracking the outlaws across the vast and desolate Montana plains, Lefty recruits a young gunslinger, Jeremiah (Diego Josef), and an old friend, a hard-drinking U.S. Marshall (Tommy Flanagan), to help deliver the men to justice. After a gunfight with the outlaws leaves Jeremiah wounded, Lefty returns home with the names of Johnson’s killers only to find that he is being accused of his friend’s murder. With the tables turned, and with his friend in the governor’s mansion (Jim Caviezel) refusing to help, Lefty must evade the law and prove his innocence by exposing the powerful men ultimately responsible for Johnson’s death. A thrilling and action-packed Western, The Ballad of Lefty Brown is a story about loyalty, friendship, and the relentless pursuit of justice. Starring Bill Pullman, Jim Caviezel, Peter Fonda, Kathy Baker, Tommy Flanagan, and Joe Anderson.
The Ballad of Lefty Brown had its world premiere at SXSW Film Festival in March 2017. Indiewire calls the film, “Glorious…director Jared Moshé resurrects the big screen possibilities of the western genre.”
