The story of Jim McNeely, a young man thrust into the vibrant and brutal West Texas oilfields in 1939, who works his way through the ranks to ultimately become a formidable wildcatter. In love with the daughter of a wealthy family but of unsuitable social status himself, Jim receives their “help” in the form of a position in the pipe-laying gang on a lease near Odessa. There he endures physical and psychological torment but rises above their petty antics to make friends and, eventually, run off with another man’s wife to start his own business servicing equipment. At its core ‘The Iron Orchard’ is a story about love and desire. Jim is torn between his past and present; two worlds juxtaposed by a rural and modern landscape and mindset. USA 2018 Ty Roberts 112m
