Movie Summary

Joel Coen , Ethan Coen
No Country For Old Men is the 2007 critical sensation adapted from the acclaimed novel by Cormac McCarthy by master filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen (Fargo, O Brother Where Art Thou, True Grit, Raising Arizona). An enigmatic, hulking bowl-haircuted psychopath armed with a cattle gun named Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem) escapes from police custody to respond to a call to retrieve drug money missing from the scene of a botched drug deal. The thief is silent type country welder Llewellyn Moss (Josh Brolin). He absconds with the loot, puts his wife Carl Jean on a bus to safety and goes on the run, Chigurh at his heels, with a transponder with which to locate the stolen booty. Hot on the heels of both men is world weary sheriff Ed Tom Bell, who has never quite come across a case like this one. Add to the mix, ex-Army Carson Wells (Woody Harrelson) and you have a suspenseful race to the finish line.moreless
