Story:

Western anthology written, directed, and produced by the Coen brothers. The story is told in six chapters which present a different story from the wild frontier. The Ballad of Buster Scruggs tells the story of sharp-shooting songster, Buster Scruggs (Tim Blake Nelson). In Near Algodones, a wannabe bank robber (James Franco) gets his due and then some. Meal Ticket, is a gothic tale about two weary travelling performers (Liam Neeson and Harry Melling).

All Gold Canyon is a story about a prospector (Tom Waits) mining for gold, while a woman, Alice Longabaugh (Zoe Kazan), finds an unexpected promise of love, along with a dose of life’s cruel irony, on a wagon train across the prairies in The Gal Who Got Rattled. Finally, ghostly laughs haunt The Mortal Remains as a Lady (Tyne Daly) rains judgment upon a motley crew of strangers undertaking a final carriage ride.
