Cry Macho (2021)
The Regal Cinema’s Wild West Wednesday series presents Clint Eastwood’s uplifting and poignant drama “Cry Macho.”
Directed by Western legend Clint Eastwood, he also stars as Mike Milo, a one-time rodeo star and washed-up horse breeder who, in 1979, takes a job from an ex-boss to bring the man’s young son home from Mexico.
Forced to take the back-roads on their way to Texas, the unlikely pair faces an unexpectedly challenging journey, during which the world-weary horseman finds unexpected connections and his own sense of redemption.
Also starring are Eduardo Minett as the young boy, Rafo, in his feature film debut, Natalia Traven as Marta, with Dwight Yoakam as Mike’s former employer, Howard Polk.
Oscar winner Eastwood directed from a screenplay by Nick Schenk and N. Richard Nash, based on the novel by Nash. Eastwood, Albert S. Ruddy, Tim Moore and Jessica Meier produced the film, with David M. Bernstein serving as executive producer.
