Museum screens "The Ballad of Lefty Brown"
7:00 PM
The Museum at Central School
The Museum at Central School will host a one-night screening of the Montana Film Festival Roadshow's Montana-made, critically acclaimed feature film The Ballad of Lefty Brown.
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.
Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times calls The Ballad of Lefty Brown "a satisfying indie western, a dark and brooding film made with both a modern touch and real love for the genre." Rated R for violence and some language, 111 minutes.
Tickets are $10 and will only be available at the Museum at Central School the day of the film. As we expect to sell out, get here early! Wine, beer, pop and water will be available for purchase.
