The couple lived a simple life on their ranch in Montanta, with their son James (Ryan Bruce), his wife Lorna (Kayli Carter) and the couples infant son Jimmy. Tragedy strikes when James passes away in a freak accident.
Fast forward to a few years down the line and the widowed Lorna marries Donnie (Will Brittain), a polite and charming man, who is not at all what he seems. Margaret takes a trip into town, and spies Lorna, Donnie and the little boy Jimmy from her car. Margaret watches Donnie give Jimmy a slap for dropping his ice cream and then gives Lorna a harder slap. As if the abuse wasn\’t awful enough to experience a few days later, without a goodbye, the family is gone. Donnie has taken them to move in with his family somewhere in North Dakota.
Margaret knows that the fate of their grandson relies in the hands of her and her husband. George points out to Margaret that she has no legal justification to take the boy away from his mother, however her instinct tells her she needs to go find little Jimmy and George goes along to keep Margaret protected.
As George and Margarat adventure into each new small town, they ask around about Donnie\’s family and keep hearing stores about Donnie\’s family clan, the Weboys, who are not good people from the sounds of it. They discover the Weboys, in their creepy farmhouse in the middle of nowhere and that is when the movie really takes off.
Overall Thoughts of Let Him Go
This movie is a THRILLER, you are on the edge of your seat and left wondering in today\’s day and age how far would you go to get back something that is so precious to you. The movie does seem to go a little slower, which based on the time period and Western feel it makes sense for it to move a little slower. If you\’re looking for a movie that will keep you interested and wondering what will happen next, I highly recommend checking out Let Him Go this Friday when it is released in a theater near you.
