Synopsis

Old Henry is an action western about a widowed farmer and his son who warily take in a mysterious, injured man with a satchel of cash. When a posse of men claiming to be the law come for the money, the farmer must decide who to trust. Defending a siege of his homestead, the farmer reveals a talent for gun-slinging that surprises everyone calling his true identity into question.

Director’s Statement

I’ve had a love of westerns since I was a kid. The lawlessness of the unsettled Wild West has been romanticised and fuelled stories of iconic characters for generations. Stories of heroes and villains. Good vs. evil on the most basic level. It’s a story I finally got a chance to tell with Old Henry. Old Henry is a “micro western” as Tim Blake Nelson likes to say. A small, simple tale set in an alternate timeline where an authentic, historical character plays in a fictional world. At its core, this is a story about a father and son. Nobody wants their kid to grow up and make the same mistakes they did. We shelter them and try our best to protect them from the mistakes of our past. It’s a story of redemption and forgiveness. It’s letting your child go out into the world and hoping you’ve raised them to know right from wrong. It’s all of those things… plus some badass gun fights.
