Amerikaanse romantische avonturenfilm uit 2000 van Billy Bob Thornton. Met Oscar-winnaar Matt Damon, Henry Thomas en Penelope Cruz. John Grady en zijn beste vriend verlaten Texas en zoeken het avontuur in Mexico. Na een een lange reis vinden ze werk als paardentemmers. Grady wordt verliefd op de dochter van de rancheigenaar die ernstige bezwaren heeft tegen deze relatie met alle gevolgen van dien. BBC Online(i) vindt : 'The main problem with this attractive looking film is that the torpid narrative is never involving.' San Francisco Chronicle(i) is enthousiast over deze film : 'It's a visual feast and a chance to see Damon, an actor whose talents are frequently obscured by his looks and his celebrity, at his best.' De dvd bevat een aantal filmografieën van regisseur en acteurs.

Billy Bob Thornton (born August 4, 1955) is an American actor, filmmaker, and musician. He had his first break when he co-wrote and starred in the 1992 thriller One False Move, and received international attention after writing, directing, and starring in the independent drama film Sling Blade (1996), for which he won an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor. He appeared in several major film roles in the 1990s following Sling Blade, including Oliver Stone's neo-noir U Turn (1997), political drama Primary Colors (1998), science fiction disaster film Armageddon (1998), the highest-grossing film of that year, and the crime drama A Simple Plan (1998), which earned him his third Oscar nomination.

In the 2000s, Thornton achieved further success in starring dramas Monster's Ball (2001), The Man Who Wasn't There (2001), and Read more on Wikipedia
