☆ Croatia’s submission for the Best Foreign Language Film, Academy Awards 2014.
Cowboys is a comedy based on a Croatian hit theatre play. It is a story of eight outsiders who will try to create a theatre play while breaking every rule of theatre craft. It tells the story of Sasha, a relatively successful theater director, who returns from the big city to his home town without a clear notion of what that change might bring, leaving behind his career to re-start the neglected local theater. The call came from the mayor and Saša’s school colleagues. However, the play will be a succession of hurdles, as the city does not have any actors or anyone who would know anything about the theater business. The candidates will all be amateurs, and as the play will seem even more impossible to set up, they settle on a common ground: Western.
