SLOW WEST isn't really a movie about bounty hunters. Rather, it's an absurdist, melancholy coming-of-age tale that jumps from odd comedy to striking violence to stirring reflection.
Bilge Ebiri,

"Set in 1870 Colorado Territory, SLOW WEST tells of a sixteen year old boy from the highlands of Scotland who crossed the wild West of America in search of the girl he loved. The film is about a European perspective of the West and young love – more information would contain spoilers."
John Maclean, Director
