The Sunset Limited DVD

SKU ID #293542
$19.97
The Sunset Limited is a searing, two character drama that mixes humor and pathos while examining the relationship between two strangers who are brought together by desperate circumstances. The story focuses on two very different men – a deeply religious black ex-con (Samuel L. Jackson) who thwarts the suicide attempt of an asocial white college professor (Tommy Lee Jones), who tried to throw himself in front of an oncoming subway train, the Sunset Limited. As the one attempts to connect on a rational, spiritual and emotional level, the other remains steadfast in his hard-earned despair. As their philosophical debate progresses, each spar passionately to defend their personal credo and convert the other.

Premiering in 2006 at the Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago, Cormac McCarthy's "The Sunset Limited" opened off-Broadway in the fall of that year.

Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L. Jackson star; written by Cormac McCarthy; directed and executive produced by Tommy Lee Jones; produced by Barbara hall. An HBO Films presentation of a Javelina Film Company production.

      Comments about this product:

      I am a born again Christian and have been around for 83 years and this is in my opinion the most powerful movie I have ever seen. I have gone out of my way to invite family and friends in just to view this movie. Samuel Jackson should have gotten an Academy Award for his portrayal in this movie. It should be shown in every House of Worship in the country and overseas. It is a powerful witnessing film that shows how God can convert someone from being a negative element in our society to becoming a faithful child of God. It should be made available to the general public to be shown in local theaters.

      Comments about this product:

      Sunset Limited is an excellent film. I have it on my DVR and have watched it a few times. It is very thought provoking and engaging.

      I have ordered copies of it for myself and for a gift, but unfortunately the HBO store keeps sending me "Thurgood" which BTW is also an excellent film.

      I am still waiting for my copies of Sunset. I can't wait to see if I get two more Thurgood's or two Sunset's.

        This is the most amazing movie we have seen in a very long time. My husband and I have watched it on several occassions and we are mesmerized each time, you can't take you eyes or ears off of the conversation. Such a captivating movie! Two of the most ingenious actors in history and a well written debate on Life and God, it doesn't get much better than this! This should have been on the "Big Screen". This movie is a MUST SEE!!!
