The Hi-Lo Country

Directed by Stephen Frears

Cruz’ first role in a Hollywood film was for British director Frears in this elegaic cowboy film, set in 1940s New Mexico. Based on Max Evans’ novel, the film recounts the story of two brothers struggling to maintain a vanishing, perhaps mythic, way of life whilst struggling against each other over the same woman.
