July 20 – Lone Star

John Sayles’ murder-mystery is a classic piece of film-making that explores interpersonal and interracial tensions in Texas.

Sam Deeds is the local sheriff who is called to investigate a 40-year-old skeleton found in the desert. As he delves into the town’s dark secrets, he begins to learn more about his father, the legendary former sheriff Buddy Deeds, who replaced the corrupt Charlie Wade.

Sayles’ complex characters are brought together as the tightly woven plot finally draws to a dramatic close.
