“a brooding, intelligent show that reverses the film’s angle of approach so that three male misfits are now seen through the eyes of a critical female outsider.”
A woman walks out of a divorce court into a bar.
A rundown saloon on the outskirts of a desert town in the American West. There's no work. At least, not much worth doing for a man.
But a man is the last thing this woman is looking for.
It's hot and dry. A place of few words and little growth.
The open sky still offers the promise of a better future.
But all around them lie the broken remains of a damaged past.
The Misfits shows the disillusionment of the American Dream and the rage and longing it continues to foster with breathtaking contemporary resonance.
