||An original screenplay
||Ben Foster, Chris Pine, Jeff Bridges, Gil Birmingham
||When oil is discovered on a ranch effectively owned by a bank because their mother, now dead, has taken out a reverse mortgage, two brothers decide to rob the branches of the bank involved, only taking ready cash until they have enough to repay the debt. But a Texas Ranger on the verge of retirement has detected the pattern of their operations and he and his partner stake out the branch of the bank where he is sure then next robbery will take place.
||Many scenes in the vistas of the Texas badlands and the desolate small towns therein. We accompany the brothers on their bank robberies and the Texas Rangers as they close in on them. One serious shoot out as events play out and the drama draws to a conclusion. There is an out of focus sex scene.
||We really liked this, as did the critics, although the general public not so much. An interesting view of gun ownership. Even though civilians have pistols they are seriously outgunned by the bank robbers and some die. Only a new release in Spain. (For those who may not know, a reverse mortgage is one where the bank lend the money against a property and allow the interest to accumulate, only recovering the debt on the death of the owner or its sale).
