Movies for Readers: All the Pretty Horses
Today's Movies for Readers is one of several Cormac McCarthy books that have been filmed in recent years, All the Pretty Horses. The movie was released in 2000 and stars young versions of Matt Damon, Penélope Cruz, Henry Thomas, and Lucas Black. It was directed by Bill Bob Thornton.
Fans of Cormac McCarthy's fiction probably already know the plot, so let's just call it one of the most brutal coming-of-age movies that you will ever see. It is well acted, beautifully shot, and very moving.
