"John Sayles' biggest and best film yet.Gripping.Perceptive and thoughtful." - Janet Maslin, The New York Times

John Sayles' Lone Star begins as a riveting whodunit about the unsolved murder of a corrupt lawman.Soon it becomes much more.The intriguing saga of clashing cultures and dirty dealings in a Texas border town.A moving look at parents and children at odds and the passions of forbidden love across generations.

Lone Star (an Academy Award nominee for its screenplay) takes on the heady complexity of a page-turner novel as its multilayered plot unfolds, showcasing Sayles' gift for assembling the best ensemble casts.Chris Cooper, Matthew McConaughey, Kris Kristofferson,Elizabeth Pena, Joe Morton, Frances McDormand and more give rich performances.It's "a great movie with staying power," Leah Rozen of People wrote, " a journey well worth taking."
