When outlaw Nat Love (Jonathan Majors) discovers that Rufus Buck (Idris Elba), the man who murdered his parents, is being released from prison, he rounds up a gang to track the man down and get his revenge. At the same time, Rufus assembles his own fearsome crew to confront Love. Fueled by passion and bent on destruction, both gangs move toward a deadly face off in this action-packed revisionist Western. Idris Elba, Jonathan Majors, Zazie Beetz, and Regina King portray real historical cowboys with the intensity and ruggedness that embodied the times. The Harder They Fall captures the classic hallmarks of the Western genre in a way that is both fun and refreshingly modern. This film will be presented with Open Captions.
