Lone Star (1996) follows several interwoven stories across three generations in a Texas border town marked by a history of racial conflict. Central to the film is Sheriff Sam Deeds’s discovery of a skeleton in the desert—the skeleton, he believes, of one of his predecessors who was run out of town decades ago. As Sam investigates the stories surrounding his predecessor’s last days, he must separate reality from myth and delve into his own family’s role in the town’s convoluted and often violent history. Starring Chris Cooper, Elizabeth Peña, Kris Kristofferson and Matthew McConaughey. Written and directed by John Sayles.
