Synopsis:
California in 1860 is a tough place to live, unless you're Daniel Dillon (Peter Mullan). Having made a fortune in gold, he now successfully owns and runs Kingdom Come, a sprawling prospecting town nestled between the snowscapes.
Daniel has designs on turning his town into a city, but to do that he needs the railroad and so invites Dalglish (Wes Bentley), the chief surveyor of the Central Pacific Railroad expedition, to conduct a survey of the surrounding area.
But just when he thinks he is about to put himself firmly on the map his long lost wife Elena (Nastassja Kinski) and their daughter Hope (Sarah Polley) appear. Twenty years earlier he had traded them in for the original claim that would later found his town. And as Dillon seeks forgiveness his world begins to falter.

Dull. - The Claim review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

Great cast, stunning scenery though as dull as dishwater. Only someone like Michael Winterbottom could take a potentially good script and cast and then turn it into such a dull film.

Pretty vacant - The Claim review by JS

Spoiler Alert
10/09/2018

As always Mullan is superb but even he can't save this. There's just nothing here, the film is as much a cold slog for the viewer as for the frontiersmen in the (nonexistent) story. I'll admit i'm not interested in the history of the gold rush/ American pioneers and I've never been a fan of the western so if anyone is this is probably worth watching.
