Cry Macho (HBOMax):

A one-time rodeo star and washed-up horse breeder takes a job to bring a man’s young son home and away from his alcoholic mom. On their journey, the horseman finds redemption through teaching the boy what it means to be a good man.

Well, take out the racism in Gran Torino, and replace it with a road trip, and there you have it. This is a good movie, but not a great one. Eastwood again plays the rough-around-the-edges but has a heart of gold oldster, and Eduardo Minett (who plays the son) is the pretty much unknown actor that does very well in his role.

It’s worth a watch, but don’t expect anything new or groundbreaking.

Sounds like a rehash of Gran Torino/The Mule. I love Clint (he also looks just like my dad) but this movie seems like a total rehash. I will surely watch it at some point but it’s not a priority.

Cry Macho, Gran Torino, and The Mule screenplays all written by Minnesotan Nick Schenk.
