It looks like Rodrigo Prieto’s feels most at home on the range… And, it shows in his latest project.
Roadside Attractions and Saban Films have released the trainer for the western film The Homesman, in which the Oscar-nominated Mexican filmmaker worked as the cinematographer.
The critically acclaimed frontier drama is Tommy Lee Jones’ latest writer-director effort. It stars Jones and Hilary Swank. In exchange for helping George Briggs (Jones), a claim jumper, Mary Bee Cuddy (Swank) recruits him to help her escort three insane women from Nebraska to Iowa.
The film was selected to compete for the Palme d’Or in the main competition section at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. It went on to premiere at Telluride, and is next at the Hamptons fest.
Prieto previously earned an Academy Award nomination for his cinematography on Ang Lee’s American West-based Brokeback Mountain.
The film is scheduled to be released in the United States on November 7, 2014.
