The French film "Les Cowboys” has enjoyed a bright year since its strong debut at the Cannes Film Festival last May. In January, the drama earned four nominations from the César Awards, France's equivalent of the Oscars. And on Friday, it opens in limited release in the United States.
Drawing comparisons to the 1956 John Ford film "The Searchers," "Les Cowboys" chronicles a father (François Damiens) who begins a winding quest to find his missing daughter. The Huffington Post has an exclusive clip from the film that shows one of the many pitstops along his arduous pursuit, which takes him to Pakistan and elsewhere. Thomas Bidegain, who wrote "A Prophet," "Rust and Bone" and "Dheepan," makes his directorial debut with a script he penned alongside Noé Debré. Catch the snippet below:
