Les Cowboys (r) 115 min in French with English subtitles
In this inventive update on THE SEARCHERS, an old-West enthusiast in modern-day France embarks on a 16-year odyssey to track down his daughter who has eloped and converted to Islam. Contemporary cultural anxieties permeate this haunting take on the John Ford classic by celebrated French screenwriter Thomas Bidegain (RUST AND BONE) in his directorial debut. LES COWBOYS is a profound tale of a young woman’s disappearance, and of the father and brother who spend years in search of her.
