Exclusive clip of Fassbender’s Slow West

How do you take your Westerns?

Boil slowly, with a smattering of tension, bounty hunters and low lives? Then you're going to drink up all of Slow West.

Following the trails of a worldly-unwise Scottish teenager, Jay (Kodi Smit-McPhee; the boy in The Road and slightly older boy in Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes), as he heads to the New World to find his sweetheart, the journey is complicated by the fact that his sweetheart (Caren Pistorius) and her father (Rory McCann, AKA The Hound from Game Of Thrones) don’t want to be found, as there’s a huge bounty on their heads for a murder they didn’t commit.

This exclusive clip sees Jay exchanging unpleasant pleasantries with Payne (Ben Mendelsohn), as Silas Selleck (Michael Fassbender) acts the silent onlooker.
