Never Grow Old

An undertaker in a peaceful town is forced to bury the victims of a vicious outlaw gang.


Why watch this film?

"Never Grow Old" is an Irish Western starring Emile Hirsch ("Into the Wild") and John Cusack ("Being John Malkovich") as the antagonist. The film follows Emile's character, a funeral director living in a peaceful, vice-free town whose peace is disturbed by the arrival of a stranger bringing alcohol, cards, and women. The vices destabilize the town, and though the activity proves lucrative for the funeral home, he realizes that the situation could put his family in danger. The film is slow and immersive, building up a lot of tension as it unfolds. The characters present a complex morality that cannot be easily defined as good or bad, and the performances of both protagonists carry the movie. It is a modern Western in all its implications, seeking ways to rekindle the genre and develop new conflicts.
