One of the films tipped for the 67th Cannes Film Festival competition slots by French and film media includes Tommy Lee Jones‘ western drama The Homesman in which he co-stars alongside Meryl Streep.

Bearing this in mind, the first trailer has arrived from France, where Jones sophomore directorial effort will theatrically release next month.

There’s no doubt that the first trailer shows some very impressive footage from the upcoming film in which Streep plays a mental patient, which should get the mouths drooling with Oscar-bait saliva.

Adapted by Jones himself from Glendon Swarthout‘s novel, The Homesman also stars Hilary Swank, Hailee Steinfeld, Tim Blake Nelson, James Spader, William Fichtner, and Jesse Plemons.

The Homesman is still awaiting U.S. distribution.

Check out Jones who journeys from Nebraska to Iowa to escort three mentally insane women and enjoy the film’s settings.
