ANGELIKA’S NOTE

COWBOYS, a modern day Western from director/writer Anna Kerrigan, is a tale of rescue, family betrayal and a father and son on the run. Variety raves, "[Steve] Zahn brings great warmth to one of his most surprising performances yet, as does the usually radiant, unexpectedly severe [Jillian] Bell... both comedic actors given a chance to defy expectations in a movie that fully embraces the spirit of reinvention." Zahn (JOY RIDE, CAPTAIN FANTASTIC) tries to liberate his young transgender son (Sasha Knight) from a harsh, unsympathetic mother (Bell, BRITTANY RUNS A MARATHON) by taking him to Canada.
