Uncork’d Entertainment presents the brooding and unconventionally gritty western, Eminence Hill, starring Dominique Swain and Anna Harr. With the requisite shootouts, director Robert Conway captures a colorful cast of interesting characters in a sturdy western.
A notorious outlaw and his gang come upon a small homestead, killing both husband and wife and kidnapping their teenage daughter. With the law closing in on them, and after losing their way, the bandits find themselves in the town of Eminence Hill, a community run by a group of deeply pious and fanatical homesteaders.
Here are 5 reasons why you should see Eminence Hill:
5) Clint James!
As the anti-hero Royce, Clint James dominates every scene with menace and charm. Violent when he needs to be, Royce (James) understands the difference between a killer and a lawman. In a captivating performance, James explores every angle of Royce and presents a complicated character with his own personal values.
4) Dominque Swain!
Surrounded by gruff and tough machismo, the no-nonsense Gretchen (Swain) holds her own resilience as part of Royce’s gang. Notice how Swain easily transitions between malice and warmth as Gretchen threatens and protects Ruth (Anna Harr) at the same time. Perfectly embodying the role, Dominique Swain is amazing to watch as the antagonist.
3) Anna Harr!
In an interesting coming-of-age tale, Anna Harr embodies Ruth with so much vulnerability and strength. Seeing the outside world for the first time, Ruth (Harr) starts out as naive before finding her own place in harshness of the western landscape.
2) Augie Duke!
Always captivating, Augie Duke adds plenty of personality as the seductive and sardonic Jane. Duke is able to say so much about Jane with her wardrobe and facial expressions.
Eminence Hill boasts an incredible ensemble cast in an unconventional western. Not only do you get an engaging cowboy flick, you get to watch Lance Henriksen chew up the scenery as the scene-stealing Mason!
