JANE GOT A GUN

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM - TB

Di­rected by Gavin O’Con­nor. Star­ring Natalie Port­man, Joel Edger­ton, Noah Em­merich, Ewan McGre­gor End­ing up with O’Con­nor af­ter Lynn Ramsay had a mys­te­ri­ous fall­ing out with the pro­duc­ers, Jane Got a Gun has be­come no­to­ri­ous as a “trou­bled pro­duc­tion”. More’s the pity, be­cause for all these shenani­gans, this gen­tly fem­i­nist pic­ture is a solidly en­ter­tain­ing, hand­somely staged oater, re­plete with DOP

Mandy Walker’s sweep­ing land­scapes, nervy string com­po­si­tions from Dead Can Dance’s Lisa Ger­rard, and rootin’, tootin’ per­for­mances. Port­man is great as the farmer who turns to vi­o­lence. 15A cert, gen re­lease, 98 min
