A slowly paced modern era western, Lone star is a sophisticated murder mystery about a small town Texas sheriff who investigates a murder that has personal connections. An engaging film that explores ethnicity, politics and history amid a complicated twenty-five year old murder investigation that demands close attention, this is also a drama about son who must come to terms with his father’s past and the continuing impact that it has on his life (Klaus Ming December 2014).
