This Western starring Kevin Costner has almost topped Netflix’s charts

Kevin Costner released a Western that went under-appreciated upon release but the thriller movie is now streaming on Netflix and proving incredibly popular.

Kevin Costner in Yellowstone

One of the best Westerns of Kevin Costner‘s career has been added to streaming service Netflix. You might have already known that, though, because the thriller movie has made its way up the platforms charts in short order.

In just one week, the 2020 film Let Him Go has climbed to number two in the top ten of Netflix movies. That’s above Adam Sandler‘s rom-com sequel Murder Mystery 2, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Once and Always, and the latest Fast and Furious movie, so pretty decent.

Diane Lane, of Superman movie Man of Steel, stars opposite Costner in the film. They’re a married couple who are trying to save their grandson from some ne’er-do-wells who live on the outskirts of their Montana township. And would you believe it, Keaton’s portraying a former sheriff.

Thomas Bezucha wrote and directed the drama movie, base don the book by Larry Watson. Coming out late 2020, Let Him Go went under the radar for many, something which Netflix is remedying.
