"Everyone in 1880s America knows Jesse James (Pitt).He's the nation's most notorious criminal, hunted by the lawin 10 states. He's also the land's greatest hero, lauded as aRobin Hood by the public. Robert Ford (Affleck)? No one knows him. Not yet. But the ambitious 19-year-old aims to change that. He'll befriend Jesse, ride with his gang. And if that doesn't bring Ford fame, he'll find a deadlier way. Friendship becomes rivalry and the quest for fame becomes obsession in this virile epic produced in part by Ridley Scott."
