Based on the book, “Cry Macho” stars 90-year-old Clint Eastwood as a one time rodeo star and washed up horse breeder who, in 1978, takes a job from an ex boss to bring the man’s young son home and away from his alcoholic mom. Crossing rural Mexico on their back way to Texas, the unlikely pair faces an unexpectedly challenging journey, during which the world weary horseman may find his own sense of redemption through teaching the boy what it means to be a good man.
“There is a craggy kind of elegance to Cry Macho. You know what you’re getting for the most part. This does not include a lot of surprises. It does include comfort in the familiar. Eastwood has earned that, too.” ~Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
