  • Literary Flicks - All the Pretty Hourses

    March 12nd, 2019 to March 12nd, 2019

    All the Pretty Horses is a 2000 film based on Cormac McCarthy's novel, and starring Matt Damon and Penelope Cruz. Set in 1949, it is an elegiac Western about two young cowboys who ride from Texas into Mexico in search of what may be left of the Old West. It touches on adventure and romance, but isn't really about them. It's about the mythical idea of heading south on a good horse, with a change of clothes, some camp gear and a gun, and seeing what happens.
