Hear me out! It’s a B-movie and yes it starts with Tommy Lee Jones in Vietnam, but keep watching! This is a surprising little nugget about sovereignty within the US that covers subject matter pretty much no other movie is willing to go near.
Tommy’s vet goes back home to his family’s ranch, and the story takes off from there.
It’s a very simple movie about a very simple subject – arguably the same subject that has exercised the chief brains within US Politics since the beginnings of the country: Federalism vs. Liberty. Quite possibly TLJ is not the most erudite incarnation of such a venerable struggle, but he gets the job done!
