An adaptation of Thomas Savage’s 1967 novel. The story follows wealthy Montana brothers Phil (Cumberbatch) and George Burbank who are two sides of one coin. Phil is graceful, brilliant and cruel where George is stolid, fastidious and gentle. Together they are joint owners of the biggest ranch in their Montana valley – a place where ‘men are still men’. The rapidly modernizing 20th century is kept at bay and the figure of Bronco Henry, the greatest cowboy Phil ever knew, is revered. When George secretly marries local widow Rose (Moss), a shocked and angry Phil wages a sadistic, relentless war to destroy her entirely using her effeminate son Peter as a pawn.
