The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
Robbing trains is such a bore...
Jesse James was a notorious outlaw back in the 1880s, robbing banks and trains and leaving a trail of dead bodies behind. The brother of one of his gang members begged to join, and was allowed in. After their last job, Jesse went back to his farm, wife and kids, and for some reason took the newcomer along. As time went by and the hero-worship turned to love of a sort, both men knew there was only one way that it was going to end.
