No Country for Old Men is a 2007 American neo-Western thriller film directed, written, and edited by Joel and Ethan Coen, based on the Cormac McCarthy novel of the same name. The film stars Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin and tells the story of an ordinary man to whom chance delivers a fortune that is not his, and the ensuing cat-and-mouse drama as the paths of three men intertwine in the desert landscape of 1980 West Texas. Themes of fate, conscience, and circumstance re-emerge that the Coen brothers have previously explored in Blood Simple and Fargo.

The film premiered in competition at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival on May 19. It won four awards at the 80th Academy Awards — Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor (Bardem) and Best Adapted Screenplay, allowing the Coen brothers to join four previous directors honored three times for a single film. In addition, the film won three British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) including Best Director, and two Golden Globes. The American Film Institute listed it as an AFI Movie of the Year, and the National Board of Review selected the film as the best of 2007.

More critics included this film on their 2007 top ten list than any other, and many regard it as the Coen brothers' finest film to date. The Guardian's John Patterson said "the Coens' technical abilities, and their feel for a landscape-based Western classicism reminiscent of Anthony Mann and Sam Peckinpah, are matched by few living directors," and Peter Travers of Rolling Stone said that it is "a new career peak for the Coen brothers" and "as entertaining as hell.

Synopsis

Mrs. Marva Munson, a religious, elderly widow, meets "Professor" Goldthwaite Higginson Dorr, who expresses interest in the room she has for rent and asks to use her root cellar for rehearsals of an early music ensemble he directs, to which she agrees. The fellow musicians in the pretend ensemble are actually a gang of criminals. The band are composed of a dim football player named Lump as the "muscle", the mustachioed and khaki bedecked Garth Pancake as the "jack of all trades" (who suffers from IBS), the foul mouthed Gawain McSam as their "inside man", and the Vietnamese, chain-smoking General as their tunneling expert (who hides his smoking habit from the disapproving Mrs. Munson by concealing his cigarette in his mouth). The group of criminals plan to dig a tunnel through the earthen wall in the cellar in order to break into the underground vault for a nearby riverboat casino. The earth they remove is taken out at night and tossed off a bridge onto a garbage barge as it passes below.

À Hollywood, dans les années 1950, Eddie Mannix travaille durement à la production pour le célèbre studio américain Capitol Pictures. Il officie également comme fixeur, sa pire activité : en l'espace d'une journée, il va devoir régler les problèmes en tout genre des stars, ainsi que retrouver la plus grosse star du studio, Baird Whitlock, qui a disparu en plein tournage du péplum Hail, Caesar !, kidnappé par un groupe de militants communistes. Il gère à la fois plein de petits tracas : le réalisateur exigeant Laurence Laurentz, qui n’apprécie guère qu’on lui ait attribué le jeune espoir du western comme tête d’affiche de son prochain drame psychologique ; les rivalités entre deux chroniqueuses ennemies qui sont également des sœurs jumelles ; la réputation de l'actrice DeeAnna Moran la reine du ballet nautique... Eddie Mannix sort ainsi ces acteurs du pétrin où ces derniers tombent avec facilité, mais doit aussi gérer en parallèle sa vie de famille ainsi que la société Lockheed qui souhaite l'engager. Une journée qui s'annonce mouvementée et pénible pour Eddie Mannix.

Mattie Ross explains that her father was murdered by Tom Chaney when she was 14 years old. While collecting her father's body in Fort Smith, Arkansas, Mattie queries the local sheriff about the search for Chaney. After being told that Chaney has fled with "Lucky" Ned Pepper and his gang into Indian Territory, where the sheriff has no authority, she inquires about hiring a Deputy U.S. Marshal. The sheriff gives three recommendations, and Mattie chooses to hire Rooster Cogburn (Bridges), whom the sheriff had described as being the "meanest". The taciturn, one-eyed Cogburn rebuffs her offer, not believing she has the reward money to hire him. She raises the money by aggressively horse-trading with Colonel Stonehill, who did business with her father.
