Cry Macho seems to be somewhat of a passion project for the legendary Clint Eastwood, having been in and around production since it was first published as a novel in 1975, written by N. Richard Nash, and after it’s gone around Hollwood for some 45 years, now certainly feels like a good time for it arrive, especially if this trailer is anything to go by.
From Warner Bros. Pictures, the neo-Western stars Eastwood as Mike Milo, a one-time rodeo star and washed-up horse breeder who, in 1979, takes a job from an ex-boss to bring the man’s young son home from Mexico. Forced to take the backroads on their way to Texas, the unlikely pair faces an unexpectedly challenging journey, during which the world-weary horseman finds unexpected connections and, maybe, even redemption.
Starring Eduardo Minett as the young boy, Rafo, in his feature film debut, Natalia Traven as Marta, with Dwight Yoakam as Mike’s former employer, Howard Polk. The cast also includes Fernanda Urrejola as Leta and Horacio Garcia-Rojas as Aurelio. Here’s your trailer:
