Educated but unmarried ranch owner Mary Bee Cuddy has led a lonely life on the frontiers of Nebraska. When three frontierswomen are deemed insane and must be sent back East, none of the men in the village are prepared to help, so Cuddy courageously volunteers to take them on the six-week trip to Ohio. Tommy Lee Jones plays George Briggs, who inadvertently becomes their ‘homesman’, a trustworthy and strong man to accompany the women in their journey.

“A humane and wrenching Western built around women’s experience of frontier life.” ★★★★ The Telegraph
