“It don’t matter what’s true… It matters the story they tell when you’re gone.” The second directorial effort from Vincent D’Onofrio, THE KID reunites D’Onofrio with his ‘Magnificent Seven’ castmates Ethan Hawke and Chris Pratt for a new spin on the legend of outlaw Billy The Kid.
In this thrilling Western, 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 (Chris Pratt). Along the way, he encounters Sheriff Pat Garrett (Ethan Hawke), on the hunt for the infamous outlaw Billy the Kid (Dane 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 valour, and will use this self-realization in a final act to save his family.
