"One of the year's best films!"-Jeffrey Lyons

Against the dramatic backdrop of the rugged Sierra Nevada mountains, The Claim's richly textured story of love, betrayal, loss and redemption unfolds.This "beautifully acted" (Premiere) tale strikes pure gold with an all-star cast featuring Wes Bentley (American Beauty), Milla Jovovich (The Fifth Element), Peter Mullan (Miss Julie), Sarah Polley (Go) and Nastassja Kinski (Tess) and is "one of the best movies in recent memory" (Elle).

It's 1869 and Daniel Dillon (Mullan) has made a fortune off his claim to gold-rich property in California.He knows that if his prosperity is to continue, he must convince a railroad planner (Bentley) to connect the new line through his town.But the plans to bring the train are derailed when, on a cold, wintry day, a mother (Kinski) and daughter (Polley) mysteriously arrive, revealing a shocking connection to Dillon
