In this offbeat historical thriller laced with dark humor, Army captain Guy Pearce thinks he's being promoted for his "heroism" during the Mexican War. Instead, he's sent to a remote fort in the Sierra Nevadas inhabited by a group of outcasts. The arrival of a Scottish stranger, who tells them of a group of pioneers who had to resort to cannibalism to survive, leads to an ominous search and some "tasty" plot twists. Robert Carlyle, David Arquette, Jeffrey Jones also star. 101 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English; Subtitles: English.
