Movie Info

Westender is the story of one man's long journey toward redemption. Not quite a mainstream genre film, and not quite an art film, Westender strives to be a unique type of movie; a category unto itself. It looks like a mainstream film, was shot with mainstream sensibilities, and has genre appeal. Yet the core story of Westender is ultimately far more of an internal odyssey than the plot-driven narrative it appears and feels. Set in a fantasy medieval world, Westender still manages to be down to earth and easily related to. Told at a comfortable pace with an emphasis on outstanding location photography, Westender is an entertaining, engaging, and rewarding film to sit back and lose yourself in for a couple of hours.The story focuses around Asbrey of Westender and his quest to recover his prized possession; a ring which serves as his connection to the past. A drunken, shiftless, and penniless trouble-maker when he loses his ring, Asbrey has nothing left. In desperation he sets out to recover his treasure from the men he lost it to. Through the experiences and interactions on his quest, Asbrey is steadily forced into confrontation with the past he has been running from for so long. Will he get his ring back? What is he running from? How far will he go?Watch Westender and discover for yourself. -- © MOB Productions

All Critics (4)

Ten points for ambition and ingenuity ... but not such a great movie.

December 13, 2004 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

For what it is -- a debut by independent filmmakers from the central Willamette Valley -- it is astoundingly ambitious and accomplished.
