Plot Summary: Along with his older brother Frank (Sam Shepard) and his friends Robert (Casey Affleck) and Charley Ford (Sam Rockwell) and Wood Hite (Jeremy Renner), Jesse James (Brad Pitt) runs the most feared gang of outlaws in the nation. As they carry out one daring bank robbery after another, they must escape not only from the law, but also from the numerous everyday folks eager to get their hands on the growing reward money. With time, James and his gang become revered by many and are even viewed as rebel heroes thanks to friendly publicity. The charismatic and unpredictable Jesse James emerges as somewhat of a glorified celebrity. As his fame escalates and it becomes increasingly difficult to keep a low profile, he surrounds himself only with those individuals he can trust the most. Unbeknownst to him, the young Robert Ford, who once idolized him as a personal hero, has grown incredibly resentful of Jesse. Along with his brother Charley, he has hatched a plot to murder James hoping to take over his place.
