A gritty, cinematic tall tale that resonates across geography, time, and the loneliest regions of the solitary heart. -- Austin Chronicle
Set against the sublime backdrop of the Wasatch Mountain Range, Jeremiah Johnson follows a Mexican-American War veteran’s journey to forget his past and find rebirth in the Utah Mountains. Motivated by fantasies of rugged hermitage, Johnson (Robert Redford) quickly overcomes his wilderness ineptitude and, with the help of an unsentimental bear trapper (Will Geer), a native woman (Delle Bolton), and an adopted son (Josh Albee), navigates the complexities of survival and the precarious relationship between early frontiersmen and native peoples. 1972, 35mm, 108 minutes.
