Cowboys (15)

Dir: Anna Kerrigan

Steve Zahn, Jillian Bell, newcomer Sasha Knight and Ann Dowd.

USA 2021 1hr 25mins


Anna Kerrigan’s award-winning debut shows a rare understanding of the complexities and challenges of modern family life, when a father and his transgender son escape to the mountains of Montana. Troy is on a camping trip with his transgender son Joe, an 11-year-old with a passion for cowboy yarns and the great outdoors. As they travel through the majestic beauty of the northern Rockies, television news reports emerge claiming that Joe is missing. As detective Faith investigates, we see a bigger picture involving Joe’s conservative mother Sally and her inability to let go of the little girl she loves.

Following a successful run on the festival circuit at BFI Flare, Tribeca, Glasgow Film Festival and Dublin International Film Festival, Anna Kerrigan’s revisionist western Cowboys blends moving drama with classic frontier imagery in the great American wilderness.
