The Kid (2019 Movie) Official Trailer - Ethan Hawke, Dane DeHaan, Jake Schur.
Rio Cutler (Jake Schur) explains that he killed his father one night when his father drunkenly beat his mother to death. His uncle Grant Cutler (Chris Pratt) hears the gunshot and comes into the house. Furious at his brother's murder, he attacks Rio. Rio stabs him in the face with a shard of glass and he and his sister Sara (Leila George) escape. She steals a horse and they take shelter in a shack they find; they intend to meet their mother's friend in Santa Fe. When they wake, they are greeted by Billy the Kid (Dane DeHaan) and his gang. Rio shows Billy a picture of his mother and Billy reveals that he also killed his father in defense of his mother. When one of the gang goes outside to check on the horses, Sheriff Pat Garrett (Ethan Hawke) and his officers shoot him. A gunfight ensues in which Billy tries to lasso his horse to escape, but Garrett shoots the horse and takes them prisoner. Sara tells Rio not to go outside, because he will be hanged if he reveals he killed their father. Seeing this as a chance to get safely to Santa Fe, Rio runs outside; he and Sara tell Garrett that their mother died and they were separated from their father while they all traveled to Santa Fe. Garrett seems suspicious but takes them along. They stop at a ranch inhabited by Mexicans where they leave the body of the man they shot. Billy sees his lover and promises to return. While Billy antagonizes Garrett during dinner, Rio slips him some butter and he escapes from his shackles, threatening to kill a deputy. Garrett produces a gun and threatens one of his gang, and the situation is diffused. Later, Garrett tells Rio about the first man he killed and asks him if he has anything he wants to tell him, but Rio says no.
