Unforgiven

Posted by lori . 1 Comment

Unforgiven is the story of a “retired” outlaw and the entire cast of characters that typically populate the Western genre.  It examines all these “romantic” characters and situations in their harsh and “unromantic” reality.  Even though it deals with the consequences of a life and culture of violence, the characters are drawn in such a way that you don’t lose sight of their humanity and frailty.  Unforgiven will have you reconsidering the Old West myth.  Unforgiven won the 1992 Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Editing and Best Supporting Actor.

    I grew up watching Clint Eastwood movies with my dad as a kid. If Fist Full of Dollars or For A Few Dollars More were on TV, I could stay up until 3:00 in the morning watching them. Unforgiven is a great movie, but I love all things Eastwood, and I still love epic Westerns, too!
