In the small border town of Frontera, Texas, Sheriff Sam Deeds uncovers hidden secrets about families and their histories as he tries to solve the murder of Charlie Wade (Kris Kristofferson), who had disappeared 40 years earlier after a confrontation with Deeds’ father, Buddy (Matthew McConaughey). Through contemplative pacing and stark cinematography, Sayles considers ethnic relations and smalltown history in this delicately woven murder mystery. (35mm)
