Based on the book, “Cry Macho” stars Clint Eastwood as a one‐time rodeo star and washed up horse breeder who, in 1978, takes a job from an ex‐boss to bring the man’s young son home and away from his alcoholic mom. Crossing rural Mexico on their back way to Texas, the unlikely pair faces an unexpectedly challenging journey, during which the world‐weary horseman may find his own sense of redemption through teaching the boy what it means to be a good man.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Cry Macho proves Clint Eastwood remains an economic filmmaker and charismatic screen presence -- albeit one who's an awkward fit for this particular project.

Eastwood's drama is awkward yet lovely; language, drinking.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Cry Macho is a Western-ish drama directed by and starring Clint Eastwood. There's dialogue about an abused teen, with bruises shown on his back. The boy is also thrown to the ground by a villain. Police with guns are shown, and one car crashes into another and rams it off the road. Injured animals (with minor wounds) are shown, and death is discussed. A woman tries but fails to seduce the main character; he begins a tender love affair with another woman that includes dancing and flirting. Characters use the words "s--t," "bitch," "a--hole," "bastard," and more. A teen tries to drink tequila (and maybe does, though it's unclear), and an adult character is seen drinking/drunk. There's dialogue about selling or abusing "pills, dope, and booze." The movie is awkward in spots but also a lovely, relaxed drama starring a cinema icon.
