The Outlaw Josey Wales

Quote
Having joined Confederate guerrillas after his family was massacred at the end of the Civil War, former farmer Josey Wales (Eastwood) decides to hunt down the friend he believes betrayed him. However, as he inadvertently gathers a motley surrogate family of strays on his travels, his thirst for revenge diminishes. Clint Eastwood delivers a marvelous western that journeys through a harsh landscape to somewhere altogether more forgiving.

That one-sentence summary at the beginning is a little ... odd. ???

Agreed... Hope Clint turns up.
Last time I was there about a month ago I sat next to Hugh Jackman... :)

Enjoy, Gant !
The Outlaw Josey Wales is arguably one of the best films Clint directed and starred in.
Perhaps the best Clint Eastwood film of the 1970’s, with Dirty Harry.
Indeed, The Outlaw Josey Wales is a turning point in Clint’s career.
Clint’s character is more vulnerable and more human than most of the characters Clint portrayed in his previous films.
The Outlaw Josey Wales is a pure masterpiece.

Not to derail anything, but you sat next to Hugh Jackman? What was the movie? And do you mean he was near by, or you actually sat right next to him?

Josey Wales would be a good one to see at the theater. I got to see Unforgiven about two years ago at the theater, so I'd definitely go see Wales if I had the chance.

The movie was "If Beale St Could Talk" Christopher... To be honest  there was one person between us.
Learned later that Mr Jackman was in London to present some awards...

Josey Wales today, suns already out, perfect day for a stroll along the Southbank first...

Absolutely amazing seeing this today.. This film will always be one of my faves and looked so good on the big screen..
Full house too and lots of younger people, I wonder if this was the first time for some of them... as it was for Mrs Gant..

I was also very impressed with the sound in the cinema.. Gave the film a very gritty and realistic feel.

Fave scene is the one between Wales and Ten Bears. Very powerful...
