Politically charged and morally vague, this crime thriller was a dark-horse contender this year for the best picture Oscar. Set in the desolate plains of West Texas, it tells the story of two brothers (Chris Pine and Ben Foster) who turn to a life of bank-robbing after their mother’s death, as the family home is threatened with foreclosure.

On their trail are an aging Texas Ranger (Jeff Bridges) and his deputy (Gil Birmingham), but the movie isn’t a simple cops-and-robbers story. It’s much more complicated, almost vindicating the brothers’ escapades. The ranger, meanwhile, is a racist old-timer who foolishly thinks he’s seen it all. It’s a shootout between two sides, neither of which can claim the moral high ground.
