SLOW WEST is a western adventure set in late 19th Century Colorado, centered on a young man’s epic search for the love of his life. Michael Fassbender stars as Silas Selleck, a mysterious and inscrutable stranger acting as the paid protector to sixteen-year-old Scottish aristocrat Jay Cavendish (Kodi Smit-McPhee), who is on a reckless journey through the American Wild West. Jay has grown up in the Scottish Highlands with Rose Ross (Caren Pistorius), a humble farmer’s daughter. As they mature, friendship grows into something deeper for Jay. When her father (Rory McCann) has to flee to America after a tragedy, Rose is suddenly torn from Jay’s life. Heartbroken, Jay turns his back on his privileged life and sets off to find Rose and win her heart.
Directed by John Maclean (formerly of The Beta Band), Slow West is now playing exclusively on DIRECTV and opens in theaters and On Demand on May 15. Stay tuned for more Slow West news!
