Nitehawk and Jesse James Revival present a special brunch 35mm screening of the ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD with a Q&A between Casey Affleck and Eric Kohn (Indiewire). One showing only!

Based on the novel by Ron Hansen, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford delves into the private lives of America’s most notorious outlaw and his unlikely assassin to offer a new perspective on a legend and address the question of what really may have transpired in the months before that infamous shooting.

As the charismatic and unpredictable Jesse James plans his next great robbery (in 1881 at the age of 34), he wages war on his enemies, who are trying to collect the reward money – and the glory – riding on his capture. But the greatest threat to his life may ultimately come from those he trusts the most. In his Academy Award nominated role, Casey Affleck plays the 19 year old Robert Ford who goes from idolizing James to harboring the ultimate resentment.  

Jesse James Revival is an ongoing effort to promote The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford as a regular staple of repertory cinema.
