A majestic film!

Broken Trail

"Broken Trail is a June 2006 Emmy Award-winning revisionist Western miniseries that originally aired on American Movie Classics as their first original movie. It stars Robert Duvall and Thomas Haden Church, and was directed by Walter Hill.

The screenplay for Broken Trail was written by Alan Geoffrion, who also wrote the novel of the same name. (ISBN 1555916058,
Fulcrum Publishing, June 2006). Novelist and screenwriter Alan
Geoffrion weaves together two facts — British were buying horses in the
American West in the late 1800s and Chinese women were being transported from the West Coast to the interior to serve as prostitutes — along with a series of Western vignettes." - Wikipedia

I just fell in-love with this miniseries the moment I saw it on AMC, the scenery was beautiful and I loved the characters. Never been much of a western genre fan, but after seeing this I immediately went ahead and borrowed some other westerns, like those with Clint Eastwood.
