The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

(2007, dir. Andrew Dominik, w/ Brad Pitt, Mary-Louise Parker, Brooklynn Proulx, Dustin Bollinger)

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford will finish at approximately 10:18pm.

The last months of Jesse James's life, from meeting Robert Ford, a 19-year-old who idolizes Jesse, to the day Ford shoots him. Jesse's a wanted man, living under a pseudonym, carrying out a train robbery, disappearing to Kentucky, and reappearing to plan a bank holdup with Robert and Robert's brother as his team. The rest of the gang is dead, arrested, or gone from Missouri. Whenever Jesse's around, there's tension: he's murderous, quixotic, depressed, and cautious. Ford wants to be somebody and wants the reward. On April 3, 1882, things come to a head: Jesse is 34, Robert 20. Ford becomes famous, reenacting the shooting on stage, facing down the label "coward," shot dead in 1892. (IMDB)
