Overview

An orphaned pacifist living in a small mining community forms a love affair with a gun in this drama directed by Thomas Vinterberg and featuring a screenplay by Lars von Trier. Despite his distain for violence, Dick (Jamie Bell) is fascinated by an antique gun he has mistaken for a toy, and soon purchases the weapon. A soft boy who lives under the care of his family's African-American maid, Clarabelle (Novella Nelson), Dick names his gun Wendy and soon forms a group of like-minded firearm enthusiasts who meet regularly in a local abandoned mine and refer to themselves as "the Dandies." Though the Dandies all pack heat, they have vowed never to draw their weapons, and view their guns more as works of art than machines of murder. When town sheriff Krugsby (Bill Pullman) requests that Dick keep an eye on Clarabelle's criminally minded son, Sebastian (Danso Gordon), Dick's seemingly innocent obsession threatens to transform him in a way he never anticipated.
