The Homesman

Lee Jones directs this drama and plays as George Briggs. Briggs and Cuddy transport three women to Iowa through the harsh Nebraska territories. Their voyage is marked by stark beauty, psychological peril and constant threat. Co-starring Hilary Swank, Grace Gummer and Miranda Otto.

He is willing to help a woman who believes she can get across Nebraska in a wagon with three insane women as passengers. The truth is he agrees to help her out because she rescues him from a very dangerous situation, and so he is indebted to her, even though she finds out that she wouldn’t have made it on her own.
