The Kid (2019)

Oscar nominee Ethan Hawke (Boyhood) is on the hunt for Billy the Kid (Dane DeHaan, Valerian) in this Western co-starring Chris Pratt. Directed by actor Vincent D'Onofrio.

A young boy, Rio (Jake Schur), is forced to go on the run across the American Southwest in a desperate attempt to save his sister (Leila George) from his villainous uncle (Pratt). Along the way, he encounters Sheriff Pat Garrett (Hawke), on the hunt for the infamous outlaw Billy the Kid (DeHaan).

Rio finds himself increasingly entwined in the lives of these two legendary figures as the cat and mouse game of Billy the Kid’s final year of life plays out. Ultimately Rio is forced to choose which type of man he is going to become, the outlaw or the man of valor.

First-time director D'Onofrio has as an admirable visual style, whether we get medium-long-shot takes or intimate close-ups. This is a good-looking period piece film, percolating with top-tier performances.

"The Kid" feels less like an actual movie than a table-napkin idea for one.
