Is It Any Good?

The best thing about Cut Bank is the strong supporting cast. Dern is in fantastic as the crotchety old postman, and Malkovich is an eccentric delight as a veteran lawman who's sharper than he looks. Billy Bob Thornton also catches more than he lets on as Dwayne's boss. But Dwayne isn't all that interesting, and that's largely because Hemsworth doesn't give us much to watch. He's there at the center of the story, but his performance makes the character recede into the background.

Even the town's resident kook, Derby Milton (Michael Stuhlbarg), is more appealing to watch; for a guy who's too shy to even look people in they eye, Milton has little trouble finding all the flaws in the half-baked scheme that sets the action moving. Viewers also should have an easy time finding the holes, in both the plan and in this unoriginal film.

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
