It's a 7/10, way better than Meek's Cutoff, but still, all these overly touchy feely arty Westerns seem to be more what I'd call Woman's Westerns. They just ain't the same animal, they got a different vibe to 'em, they still don't even compare to say a Woman's Western from the Golden Age like Westward The Woman. they just got an off feel to them.

Of course, that's because these older films are no women westerns, but men westerns which happen to have some more women in the cast than usual. Apart from other fundamental differences in the making of a film like Westward the Women and modern western made by a woman who makes independent films, and does not work for the Hollywood mainstream.

It speaks for the richness of the genre that such films also got made.
