Everyone in 1880s America knows Jesse James. He’s the nation’s most notorious criminal, hunted by the law in 10 states. He’s also the land’s greatest hero, lauded as a Robin Hood by the public. Robert Ford, meanwhile, is a nobody.
That, however, isn’t something the ambitious 19-year-old will settle for. He’ll befriend Jesse, join his gang and gain his confidence, and eventually become his downfall. Friendship turns to rivalry and the quest for fame becomes obsession in this gripping epic produced by Ridley Scott, examining the last days of America’s most famous outlaw, and featuring outstanding performances by Brad Pitt and Casey Affleck.
