Overlooked and Underrated Week continues at Trailers from Hell, with screenwriter Josh Olson introducing Sean Penn’s directorial debut “The Indian Runner,” starring Viggo Mortensen.
Actor Sean Penn wrote and
directed this unheralded ’60s era Nebraska-set drama inspired by Bruce
Springsteen’s song “Highway Patrolman.” The last film of actress Sandy Dennis,
who plays the wife of Charles Bronson in one of his last substantial dramatic
roles. Look for Benicio Del Toro in his third film appearance.
