The Missing

Ron Howard's tale of the frontier and the wild west, set in the south west, it stars Cate Blanchett and Tommy Lee Jones in the starring roles as an estranged father daughter duo who come together to help each other in a time of need.

It has the usual western theme of cowboys fighting Indians but with a twist. This time it is a frontier woman and her born-again-Indian father who gangs against the evil Indians who had kidnapped the woman's daughter with the purpose of selling her off to Mexicans down the border. Its a nice history lesson, to understand how people used to live in those days, nothing too serious, except the sweeping landscapes.
