Lee Hayden (Sam Elliott) is an aging Western icon with a golden voice, but his best performances are decades behind him. He spends his days reliving old glories and smoking too much weed with his former-co-star-turned-dealer, Jeremy (Nick Offerman), until a surprise cancer diagnosis brings his priorities into sharp focus. He soon strikes up an exciting, contentious relationship with stand-up comic Charlotte (Laura Prepon), and he attempts to reconnect with his estranged daughter, Lucy (Krysten Ritter), all while searching for one final role to cement his legacy.

    A gentle, quiet little masterpiece which spoke volumes, to me a least, about life and love. Highly recommended to those seeking a good story with a appropriate turn-around for Lee. Guess you’ll have to watch the film to discover what that is, but life is in the living, not in the ending. Perhaps that is why I found the narrative so absorbing.
