Smack in the middle of the West, young Jay sets out on a trip across the vast, arid American landscape. However, what he’s after isn’t gold or hunting down dangerous criminals, but reencountering the love of his life. On the way, he runs into the enigmatic Silas, who offers to protect him and who is pursuing the same woman as him. Michael Fassbender heads up this western with shades of romance and comedy.
He studied fine arts in Edinburgh and London. His taste for the pictorial can be observed in Slow West, his debut feature film after making the shorts Man on a Motorcycle (09) and Pitch Black Heist (11), produced by and starring Michael Fassbender.
