The Dead Don’t Hurt

In a frontier town run by corrupt forces, fiercely independent Vivienne Le Coudy (Vicky Krieps) embarks on a relationship with the passionate, hard-working Holger Olsen (Viggo Mortensen) but it’s one that leads to danger for them both.


With the threat of the Civil War looming, their future becomes uncertain when Holger decides to fight for the Union, leaving Vivienne on her own to face the dangerous threats of the corrupt mayor (Danny Huston), the power-hungry ranch owner (Garret Dillahunt) and the rancher’s violent son (Solly McLeod). From writer director Viggo Mortensen comes a powerful new western about love and survival that is both epic and intimate.
