The Harder They Fall to Land in November

A western that Netflix has been teasing for months, The Harder They Fall, will stream from November 3.

But it may disappoint Clint Eastwood traditionalists, with the London Film Festival, which it will open on October 6, describing the directorial debut of Jeymes Samuel (AKA the Bullitts) as a “righteously new school western“.

According to festival director Tricia Tuttle, “This is brutal and funny genre film-making …

“It’s rare for a debut film-maker to pull off something this ambitious and accomplished in their first feature.”

Here’s the synopsis:

When outlaw Nat Love (Jonathan Majors) discovers that his enemy, Rufus Buck (Idris Elba), is being released from prison, he rounds up his gang to track Rufus down and seek revenge.

Those riding with him in this assured, righteously new school Western include his former love Stagecoach Mary (Zazie Beetz), his right and left hand men — hot-tempered Bill Pickett (Edi Gathegi) and fast drawing Jim Beckwourth (R.J. Cyler) — and a surprising adversary-turned-ally.

Rufus Buck has his own fearsome crew, including “Treacherous” Trudy Smith (Regina King) and Cherokee Bill (LaKeith Stanfield), and they are not a group that knows how to lose.
