Tom Hanks is an American treasure. We do not mind sharing him with the rest of the world because he is kind, generous, and makes everyone happy. An interesting tidbit about this movie would be about Helena Zenge, his young co-star, who did not know how famous Hanks truly is before working with him (source). It is great to see Tom Hanks act in a traditional western. I honestly enjoyed watching it. And I do intend to view it a second or third time again down the line.
