Product Overview

Top-rated miniseries! Academy Award winner Robert Duvall (1983 Best Actor in a Leading Role, Tender Mercies) and Academy Award nominee Thomas Hayden Church (2004 Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role, Sideways) star in this moving Western drama.

Set in 1897, Print Ritter (Duvall) and his estranged nephew Tom Harte (Hayden Church) become the reluctant guardians of five abused and abandoned Chinese girls. Ritter and Harte's attempts to care for the girls are complicated by their responsibility to deliver a herd of horses while avoiding a group of bitter rivals, intent on kidnapping the girls for their own purposes. Classic Western action takes center stage in this dramatic miniseries!

Reviews
ReviewSource Variety
Review A slow-going cross-country trek, AMC's first original movie owes a considerable debt to producer-star Robert Duvall, who is such a pleasure to watch as to (somewhat) compensate for the leisurely pace. Modeled after the "Lonesome Dove" series, this earnest Western from producer-director Walter Hill finally arrives at a satisfying conclusion, although the narrative about taciturn men and imperiled women at times seems mired in mud...Even so, there are lovely moments in the later going and genuine pathos in the fate of the girls, whose frightening lot as strangers in a strange and abusive land becomes the most deftly captured element in Alan Geoffrion's screenplay. Ditto for Print and Nola's furtive flirtation -- nicely played by Duvall and Scacchi, despite how tired the scenario is...Given the ratings TNT regularly scored with cowboy made-fors and the passel of vintage Westerns AMC plays on weekends, Hill's classy production should corral an audience and put the cable net on the map as a provider of original movies. It's only too bad AMC opted to go the four-hour route, because while this "Trail" ain't exactly broken, some judicious editing could have fixed it.
