The Oscar-winning legendary director and actor Clint Eastwood is back with a new film, Cry Macho. The 91-year-old actor/director has directed and also appears as the lead in the film. 



With the latest production, the famed director treads down a path where many men have tried but failed before. The neo-Western movie is based on a book by N. Richard Nash from 1975, and since its inception, several Hollywood leading figures have tried to take on the role of a washed-up horse breeder on the road to redemption, and some have failed miserably. 

Actors like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Roy Scheider, and Burt Lancaster all have tried to take on the role that is portrayed in Eastwood’s latest flick, with some being memorable and some plain bland.

At the astounding age of 91, the director remains active not just behind the camera but also in front of it. In the drama written for the big screen by author Nash, with contributions from co-writer Nick Schenk, who also acted in Eastwood’s films “Gran Turino” and “The Mule”), Eastwood himself plays the lead of a decorated onetime rodeo star who, after losing his family, slowly spirals into alcohol addiction and despair.

According to the screenplay, the plot is set in the late 1970s, and the onetime rodeo star is forced to take a job from a former boss to bring the man’s young son home and away from his own alcoholic parents. A treacherous journey from Mexico back to Texas, the movie pans out evenly from start to finish.

“It’s about a man who has been through some hard times in his life, and then unexpectedly another challenge is brought to the foreground,” Eastwood told the Entertainment Weekly during an interview. “He would normally never do it, but he is a man of his word. He follows through. And it starts his life over again.”


The trailer for the movie that was recently released by Warner Bros. shows how the fabled director-producer stars in the film as Mike Milo, a one-hit-wonder rodeo star and a washed-up horse breeder who, in 1979, is forced to take a job from his ex-boss to bring the man’s young son home from Mexico

Forced to take the backroads on their way to Texas, the pair faces an unexpectedly challenging journey, during which the rodeo star reassesses his life and finds unexpected connections to it, making him think about his own sense of redemption.

This is Eastwood’s first film as a director since he last directed “Richard Jewell” in 2019, in which he didn’t appear on camera. It is a little-known fact that Eastwood was attached to star in “Cry Macho” as early as 1988, but he instead opted to go for his role as Dirty Harry in “The Dead Pool.”



The newest Eastwood production starts Eduardo Minett as the young boy who the rodeo retrieves as per his assignment, Dwight Yoakam as the boss who gives him the assignment, and Fernanda Urrejola alongside the fabled director who plays the lead.

The cast also includes Natalia Traven, known for Collateral Damage, and Horacio Garcia-Rojas from Netflix crime drama NARCOS as Aurelio.
