In this Western with curiously Shakespearean undertones, a patriarchal rancher’s empire is threatened by conflict within his family. On the day of his release from prison, the son of a cattle baron swears vengeance on his three half-brothers responsible for dispossessing him of his inheritance and driving his father to a fatal stroke. The ensuing story unfolds in flashback, tracing the sibling rivalries that led to the man’s imprisonment. Not Rated; 105 min. Seating is limited.
