The Indian Runner Film Poster


In 1968 ex-Sheriff Joe Roberts (David Morse) tries to bring his wayward brother Frank (Viggo Mortensen), a Vietnam veteran, back into the fold. But even after getting married and taking a job on a construction site, Frank proves too volatile to maintain a working man's existence. Based on the Bruce Springsteen classic song 'Highway Patrolman', this was Sean Penn's first film as director.
