NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN is a mesmerizing new thriller both written for the screen and directed by Academy AwardŽ-winning filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen. Based on the acclaimed novel by Pulitzer Prize-winning American master, Cormac McCarthy, the film is set in present day, when rustlers have given way to drug-runners and small towns have become free-fire zones.
The story begins when Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) finds a pickup truck surrounded by a sentry of dead men. A load of heroin and two million dollars in cash are still in the back. When Moss takes the money, he sets off a chain reaction of catastrophic violence that not even the law -in the person of aging, disillusioned Sheriff Bell (Tommy Lee Jones) - can contain. As Moss tries to evade his pursuers - in particular a mysterious mastermind who flips coins for human lives (Javier Bardem) - the film simultaneously strips down the American crime drama and broadens its concerns to encompass themes as ancient as the Bible, and as bloodily contemporary as this morning's headlines.
NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN stars Academy AwardŽ-winner Tommy Lee Jones (THE FUGITIVE, MEN IN BLACK), Josh Brolin (GRINDHOUSE), Academy AwardŽ-nominee Javier Bardem (THE SEA INSIDE), Academy AwardŽ-nominee Woody Harrelson (THE PEOPLE VS. LARRY FLYNT) and Kelly Macdonald (TRAINSPOTTING). NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN is written for the screen and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, produced by Scott Rudin, Ethan Coen and Joel Coen, and executive produced by Robert Graf and Mark Roybal.
