Written and directed by Martin Koolhoven, 'Brimstone' stars Dakota Fanning ('War of the Worlds', 'The Secret Life of Bees') and the Emmy-award winner Guy Pearce ('L.A. Confidential', 'Memento'), following a young woman’s epic quest for survival. Our heroine is Liz (Fanning), a young and beautiful woman who is being hunted by a vengeful preacher (Pearce) – a diabolical extremist and her nemesis. But Liz is a genuine survivor; she’s no victim but instead a woman of fearsome strength who responds with astonishing bravery to claim the better life she and her daughter deserve. Told in four chapters, 'Brimstone' is a suspenseful tale of guilt and retribution that unfolds at the end of the 19th century in the unforgiving American West.



  • One of the best movies I have seen in a long time

    This a must see thriller, I watched this over a year ago on a plane and it stuck with me. Can't believe it's only just been released now. Amazing film.
  • Very good western

    Ignore the title and the appalling poster artwork, both of which completely undersell what is imho the best western of the past year. Split into 4 non-linear chapters around the life of the main female protagonist- haunted and hunted by Guy Pearce (in a career best). Highly recommended.

    Outstanding performances from both Dakota and Guy! A chilling, provoking and abhorrent realistic portrayal of New World western culture! Edge of your seat stuff...a MUST see fiim that will impact upon you so much you will never forget it!!! It doesn't come any better than this...

    Dakota is fantastic in this. Wait to be shocked and perturbed as the film progresses. The end is near to shameful on some men and religion and the USA in that century. This is some story. Interesting that it was made in Germany!!!!!! and not USA????
