"Cowboys" is a 2020 drama film directed and written by Anna Kerrigan. The movie stars Steve Zahn as Troy, a father who escapes with his transgender son, Joe (Sasha Knight), to the Montana wilderness to avoid a custody battle with his ex-wife. The movie begins in a small Montana town where Troy and his ex-wife Sally (Jillian Bell) are at odds about their child's upbringing. Sally, a devout Christian, disapproves of Joe's gender identity and is actively trying to "fix" him by sending him to a conversion therapy camp. Troy, on the other hand, is more accepting of his son's identity and is willing to do whatever it takes to protect him. In an effort to escape the tense situation, Troy takes Joe on a camping trip and tries to teach him the basics of survival. As they journey deeper into the wilderness, tension between the father and son begin to surface as they deal with the complexities of their relationship. Throughout their journey, they encounter different challenges that test their strength and bond. They meet up with other people in the great outdoors, both friendly and hostile. One such person is a border patrol officer who becomes suspicious of Troy and Joe's relationship. Meanwhile, Sally enlists the help of a sheriff to find and bring back her son and ex-husband. As the story unfolds, viewers witness the different facets of Troy and his relationship with Joe. We learn that Troy himself is struggling with addiction and is at a crossroads in his life, trying to do right by his son while also dealing with his own personal demons. The movie explores themes of family, identity, acceptance, and survival. It offers a fresh perspective on the transgender experience through Joe's character and shows how parents can learn to accept and support their children, even when it may seem difficult. Steve Zahn delivers a powerful performance as Troy, portraying the character's inner turmoil with honesty and vulnerability. Sasha Knight, who is transgender in real-life, brings authenticity and depth to the role of Joe. Jillian Bell also shines in her portrayal of Sally, a woman torn between her faith and her love for her child. "Cowboys" is a well-crafted film that is both moving and thought-provoking.
