Eastwood returns to the screen as an actor and director for latest film opening Sept. 17
In many ways, most of the movies Clint Eastwood has made since “Unforgiven” have been about once important men far past their prime who are redefining what it is to be heroic or to have character. “Cry Macho” certainly carries on in that tradition, though it saves some space for some smutty humor, too. The teen Eastwood is driving across Mexico lines has a chicken that participates in cockfights, and Eastwood has a priceless reaction when he tells him his chicken’s name is “Macho.”
“Guy wants to name his cock Macho, that’s okay by me,” he replies.
“Cry Macho” is based on a novel by N. Richard Nash, and Nash also co-wrote the screenplay based on his book along with Nick Schenk. The film co-stars Dwight Yoakam, Natalia Traven and Eduardo Minnett as the young boy in what is his screen debut.
“Cry Macho” will open in theaters from Warner Bros. and on the same day on HBO Max on September 17. Check out the first trailer here and above.
