Saddle up with The Unusual Suspects as they mosey on up to this Oscar hopeful. The Homesman, directed by Tommy Lee Jones, centers on a nonsense-free pioneer maven named Mary Bee Cuddy (Hilary Swank) who is tasked with escorting three madness-stricken women from Nebraska to Iowa. Who could pass up such a scenic trip right? Along the way she teams with down-and-out scoundrel George Briggs (Jones) and the two discover just how much life sucked in the 1850s.


Brian and Chris stave off rickets and tomahawk injuries to bring you this Highly Suspect Review. Does Homesman have what it takes to find Oscar gold at the end of this bitter winter? Pack your wagons and give the review a listen to find out.
