Summary

Unforgiven

Clint Eastwood’s film Unforgiven is an exciting modern classic that rode off with four 1992 Academy Awards®, including Best Picture and Director. "The movie summarized everything I feel about the Western," Eastwood told the Los Angeles Times. "The moral is the concern with gunplay."

Eastwood and Morgan Freeman play retired, down-on-their-luck outlaws who pick up their guns one last time to collect a bounty offered by the vengeful prostitutes of the remote Wyoming town of Big Whiskey. Richard Harris is an ill-fated interloper, a colourful killer-for-hire called English Bob, and Best Supporting Actor Oscar® winner Gene Hackman is the sly and brutal local sheriff whose brand of law enforcement ranges from unconventional to ruthless. Big trouble is coming to Big Whiskey. And Unforgiven is "a Western for the ages" (Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times).
