Brad Pitt and Casey Affleck

“…There would be no eulogies for Bob, no photographs of his body would be sold in sundries stores, no people would crowd the streets in the rain to see his funeral cortege, no biographies would be written about him, no children named after him, no one would ever pay twenty-five cents to stand in the rooms he grew up in. The shotgun would ignite, and Ella Mae would scream, but Robert Ford would only lay on the floor and look at the ceiling, the light going out of his eyes before he could find the right words.”

The Central Cast of The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

A brilliant study in human cruelty and betrayal stunningly filmed by Roger Deakins.
