International superstar Brad Pitt (Troy) stars as legendary outlaw Jesse James in this Western drama based on Ron Hansen's best-selling novel The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford. A charismatic, superstitious and moody man, Jesse James (Pitt) presides over a rag tag gang of outlaws who fear his quick temper and even quicker shooting ability. Young Robert Ford (Casey Affleck - Ocean's Twelve) worships Jesse and joins the James Gang, only to become resentful of his hero. Intent on taking Jesse's place, the young upstart hatches a plan to kill the fastest gun in the West. But after gunning Jesse James down, Robert Ford lives out the rest of his days tormented by the cold-blooded killing of his former mentor.

Pitt stars in beautiful -- but brutal -- Western.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that teens may be drawn to this violent, mature Western by star Brad Pitt. Leading up to the titular event, viewers see bleeding wounds and seeping heads, arguments that end in shootouts, fistfights and hostile wrestling, and an intense train robbery. You can also expect some language ("s--t," "pecker," "bitch," etc.), sexual insinuations, cigarette smoking, and hard liquor drinking (the latter are both accurate for the movie's 1880s "Wild West" setting).
