Movie Info

This contemporary western stars Dermot Mulroney as a Montana teenager whose sanity is being eroded by his parent's domestic squabbles. Linking up with Lili Taylor, a Wyoming-bound transient with a checkered history, Mulroney embarks upon an odyssey of self-discovery. Unfortunately, he persists in crossing the paths of people even more emotionally disturbed than his mother and father. Adapted by Richard Ford from two of his short stories, Bright Angel is a film of short, pithy vignettes, handled with subtlety and sensitivity-at least until the unexpectedly brutal finale.

  • Movies like this (I am also reminded of Terrence Malick's Badlands and Days of Heaven) depend so much on actors for the right tone, and Lili Taylor and Dermot Mulroney are perfectly matched to the material.

  • The spacious but authentic location shots set the mood for the danger that awaits the two innocents.

    Bright Angel seemed more of a movie to watch just because nothing else was on.It could've been a better if only everything didn't start happening at the end of the movie
