SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Oscar winner Tommy Lee Jones will screen a Western drama he wrote and directed at the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival this fall.
The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that Jones will attend a screening of "The Homesman" at the October festival.
Jones also stars in the movie, which features Meryl Streep and Hillary Swank. The plot centers on a claim jumper and a pioneer woman who escort three insane women from Nebraska to Iowa.
The project was filmed primarily in New Mexico and will open in theaters in November.
Festival organizers say they are still going through more than 700 submissions to put together their lineup.
The festival is now in its sixth year and is held at venues throughout Santa Fe.
