We’ve picked out the best movie that takes place in each state, and we’ve got the all-American results ready for your perusal.
What’s the best movie from your home state?
Alabama – To Kill a Mockingbird
A powerful story adapted from a powerful book, To Kill a Mockingbird stars Gregory Peck as attorney Atticus Finch. It’s a beautifully inspiring story about the humanity that binds us all together, and the necessary struggle to fight for what’s right.
But this isn’t the only great Alabama movie.
Alabama runner-ups: Ava DuVernay’s civil rights drama Selma, Tim Burton’s grown-up fable Big Fish, the female friendships of Fried Green Tomatoes, and Tom Hanks’ lovable Forrest Gump.
Alaska – Insomnia (2002)
A remake of a Norwegian movie, Christopher Nolan’s Insomnia puts Al Pacino and a scarily cast-against-type Robin Williams in a cat-and-mouse cop-and-killer chase in the unending sun of Alaska. Pacino can’t sleep, and neither will you after watching this thriller.
Alaska runner-ups: romcom The Proposal, kids’ movie Balto, and The Grey, in which Liam Neeson fights a bunch of wolves.
Arizona – Raising Arizona
The Coen Brothers, Nicolas Cage, Holly Hunter, and John Goodman all teamed up to make Raising Arizona, a madcap crime-comedy about convicts who kidnap a baby with the best of intentions. It’s one of the funniest flicks ever made, and the Arizona desert looks incredible on screen.
Arizona runner-ups: Any version of 3:10 to Yuma, John Wayne’s underrated 3 Godfathers, Martin Scorsese’s gentle Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, sci-fi cult classic It Came From Outer Space, and Wes Anderson’s droll debut Bottle Rocket.
Arkansas – True Grit
It doesn’t matter which version of True Grit you watch. Both the 1969 John Wayne-starring tale and the star-studded 2010 Coen Brothers remake are essential Arkansas viewing. Shoutout to Hailee Steinfeld, who steals the Coen Brothers’ version from vets like Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, and Josh Brolin.
Arkansas runner-ups: Billy Bob Thornton’s breakthrough Sling Blade and Matthew McConaughey’s underrated Mud gives an honest look at the working class realities of AR.
California – Clueless
It changed the way the country speaks and dresses. It brought an ideal California lifestyle to the mainstream. And it introduced us all to the ageless charms of Paul Rudd. It’s Clueless, the Alicia Silverstone-starring charmer about Beverly Hills high school students trying to get by.
There are tons of iconic Cali classics, so buckle up
California runner-ups: Beverly Hills Cop, Fast Times At Ridgemont High, Sunset Boulevard, Tangerine, Sideways, Pulp Fiction, Speed, Pretty Woman, La La Land, Boogie Nights, Boyz n the Hood, Heat, Rebel Without a Cause, Training Day, and a million more.
Colorado – The Shining
“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” Here’s a tip for Jack Nicholson: Get outside of that dang Overlook Hotel and go explore beautiful Colorado! Then again, if he did that, we wouldn’t have Stanley Kubrick’s horror masterpiece The Shining. So, never mind.
Colorado runner-ups: Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman, the Sylvester Stallone camp classic Cliffhanger, the other Stephen King Colorado story Misery and of course, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut.
Connecticut – Beetlejuice
Connecticut is a wonderful state. If you’re from there, we’re sure you’re a wonderful person. It’s just kind of funny to note that Tim Burton’s Connecticut-set Beetlejuice had to open up a demon portal to jazz up the place. Just saying.
Connecticut runner-ups: Bringing Up Baby, Far From Heaven, Holiday Inn, The Ice Storm, Mystic Pizza, Rachel Getting Married, The Ref, or The Stepford Wives (1975).
Delaware – Fight Club
First rule of Fight Club? Do not talk about Fight Club. Second rule of Fight Club? Never mention where it’s set. But there are enough clues (license plates, use of the state motto) that reveal Brad Pitt and Edward Norton are pummeling each other in Delaware.
If you need another Delaware-set slice of 1990s angst, check out Empire Records. The cult classic follows employees of an indie record store (including future superstars Renee Zellweger and Liv Tyler) as they fight the looming presence of Corporate America.
Florida – Moonlight
The best Florida-set movie is also one of the best movies in recent years. Moonlight is a beautiful story of love and identity, with gorgeous images capturing the various colors of the tropical state. No dry eyes when you watch this one.
Florida runner-ups: Scarface (1983), the hyperactive Bad Boys franchise, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Florida Project, The Birdcage, 99 Homes, Body Heat, Cocoon, Cool Hand Luke, Magic Mike, Monster, and Spring Breakers.
Georgia – The Color Purple
You can feel the hot Georgia sun bearing down on every character in Steven Spielberg’s The Color Purple, starring Whoopi Goldberg, Danny Glover, and Oprah Winfrey. It highlights the struggles Goldberg’s character must endure, but also represents her unending strength.
Georgia runner-ups: Gone With the Wind, hip-hop drama ATL, Edgar Wright’s high-octane Baby Driver, the terrifying Deliverance, the wonderfully cute Love, Simon, and Halle Berry’s tough drama Monster’s Ball.
Hawaii – Lilo & Stitch
The charming Disney film Lilo & Stitch is our Hawaii pick because it shows us some authentic Hawaiian culture. Anyone who’s visited the film’s goofy but sincere world will always remember that “Ohana means family.” Plus, we love anyone who loves Elvis.
Hawaii runner-ups: classic love story From Here to Eternity, the unorthodox yet no less classic love story Forgetting Sarah Marshall and George Clooney’s descent into American insecurity in The Descendants.
Idaho – Napoleon Dynamite
Its lines are endlessly quotable. Its visual style is bizarrely unique. And its central performance is a true work of art. It’s Napoleon Dynamite, the Idaho-set comedy with a heart of gold. Come for the dance moves, stay for the empathy.
Idaho runner-ups: Toys, the Robin Williams-starring fantastical comedy, The River Wild, starring pyschopaths Kevin Bacon and John C. Reilly who mess with Meryl Streep on a whitewater rafting trip.
Illinois – Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
Director John Hughes’ movies are Chicago. But one is more Chicago than the rest: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, the Matthew Broderick comedy about stopping and looking around once in a while. These kids treat Chicago like their playground, and it’s exhilarating to watch.
Illinois runner-ups: Barbershop, The Blues Brothers, Eight Men Out, The Fugitive, A League of Their Own, Road to Perdition, Rookie of the Year, Soul Food, The Sting, Stranger Than Fiction, Widows, Mean Girls, and… Chicago.
Indiana – A Christmas Story
Sure, both Hoosiers and Rudy represent the heartland ideals of Indiana. And sure, both inspirational sports movies will make the hardest of hearts swell. But only one movie draws Indianians in every year like bugs to a Christmas light.
Indiana runner-ups: A Christmas Story is an American classic — a holiday tradition for countless families and the tale of an average Indiana family just trying to have a nice Christmas.
Iowa – The Music Man (1962)
If you really want to learn how to play music, you probably shouldn’t try Harold Hill’s “Think System.” But if you want a catchy, bombastic, Iowa-set movie musical, you really ought to give The Music Man a try. 76 trombones never sounded so good.
Don’t forget these corn-fed classics. If you watch them… they will come.
Iowa runner-ups: Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep’s The Bridges of Madison County, hilarious farce Noises Off, underrated musical The Pajama Game, working-class drama What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, and Kevin Costner’s Field of Dreams.
Kansas – The Wizard of Oz
There’s no place like home. And for The Wizard of Oz’s Dorothy, home is Kansas. While much of the film takes place in the magical land of Oz (as in, “We’re not in Kansas anymore”), Dorothy’s state love catapults this classic to the top.
Kansas runner-ups: In Cold Blood, an adaptation of a vicious murder; Capote, which is about the writing of In Cold Blood, and Dances With Wolves, Kevin Costner’s acclaimed, epic western.
Kentucky – The Insider
Cigarettes are bad. But we didn’t know how bad until the Kentucky-set docudrama The Insider hit the screens. Russell Crowe and Al Pacino lead us on an electrifying journey through Big Tobacco’s attempts to make us all addicted and cover it all up.
Louisville runner-ups: The Return of the Living Dead, an absolutely looney zombie horror-comedy, Coal Miner’s Daughter, American Animals, April Love, Boy Meets Girl (2014), The Clovehitch Killer, and In Country.
Louisiana – Interview With the Vampire
If you want to see very attractive movie stars do their best at a Louisiana accent, may we recommend Interview With the Vampire? Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, and Antonio Banderas are some of the vampire hunks who represent New Orleans excess. It’s a wild ride.
Louisiana runner-ups: Girls Trip, A Streetcar Named Desire, Steel Magnolias, Beasts of the Southern Wild, The Princess and the Frog, The Big Easy, The Pelican Brief, The Princess and the Frog, 12 Years a Slave, Eve’s Bayou, and yes, The Waterboy.
Maine – The Shawshank Redemption
Is The Shawshank Redemption the most watchable movie ever made? We can’t say for sure. What we can say is that if we flip past the Maine-set Tim Robbins/Morgan Freeman drama on TV, we will stop whatever we’re doing and finish it.
Maine runner-ups: Casper, Charlotte’s Web, The Cider House Rules, The Good Son, In the Bedroom, The Iron Giant, Wet Hot American Summer, and almost every Stephen King adaptation.
Maryland – The Blair Witch Project
“I’m so scared.” Yeah, of course you are, Heather Donahue. You’re in the middle of the woods running around trying to find a dang witch! The Blair Witch Project changed horror cinema forever, and the Maryland-set found footage masterpiece still shocks.
If you’re not done with Baltimore, Maryland has more.
Maryland runner-ups: The Silence of the Lambs, Diner, The Shape of Water, Tin Men, Saved!, and …And Justice for All.
Massachusetts – Good Will Hunting
Matt Damon and Ben Affleck sure do love Boston. Sorry, Bah-ston. Their love of all things Hah-vahd yahd began with their breakthrough film, Good Will Hunting, the gentle story of a janitor genius and a therapist played by Robin Williams. How you like dem apples?
Massachusetts runner-ups: The Departed, The Fighter, Love Story, Mystic River, The Social Network, The Verdict, A Beautiful Mind, The Crucible (1996), Goon, Hocus Pocus, Little Children, ParaNorman, Re-Animator, School Ties, Shutter Island, Session 9, and The Town.
Michigan – Robocop (1987)
What’s in store for the future of Detroit? If it’s anything less than the world of RoboCop, we will be both relieved and disappointed. The Motor City-set sci-fi satire masterpiece is violent, hilarious, gripping, and pure Michigan. Your move, creep.
Michigan runner-ups: 8 Mile, Grosse Pointe Blank, The Virgin Suicides, The Evil Dead, The Crow, Dreamgirls, Mr. Mom, Only Lovers Left Alive, Anatomy of a Murder, or Somewhere in Time.
Minnesota – The Mighty Ducks
Ducks fly together. In the wintry cold of Minnesota, this might be difficult. But in the warm world of The Mighty Ducks, heart, determination, teamwork, and a flying V formation is all you need to succeed. Someone give Emilio Estevez a hug!
Minnesota runner-ups: cult comedy classic Drop Dead Gorgeous, the endlessly endearing Grumpy Old Men, Ellen Page’s quotable pregnancy comedy Juno, the inspirational Charlize Theron-starring North Country, and the Coen Brothers’ puzzling A Serious Man.
Mississippi – O Brother, Where Art Thou?
In O Brother, Where Art Thou?, the Coen Brothers cover movie stars George Clooney, Holly Hunter, and John Goodman in a thick layer of dust. The soundtrack is covered in incredible folk and bluegrass music. And any viewer is covered with pure Mississippi joy.
Mississippi runner-ups: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1958), In the Heat of the Night, Baby Doll, The Help, Life (1999), Mudbound, and A Time to Kill.
Missouri – Meet Me in St. Louis
Did you know “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” originated in Judy Garland’s Meet Me in St. Louis? It’s one of many powerful, lovely moments in the Missouri-set film. And it’s another Garland classic that can be summed up with “There’s no place like home.”
Missouri runner-ups: familial dramedy Parenthood, local theatre comedy Waiting for Guffman, or the darker faring The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Gone Girl, Road House, and Winter’s Bone.
Montana – Arrival
For a movie about aliens with unclear intentions, Arrival is a surprisingly hopeful movie. Amy Adams learns, in the wilderness of Montana, that the key to human understanding is not through conflict, but communication. That, like the alien’s weird drawn language, is beautiful.
Montana runner-ups: melodrama Legends of the Fall, loving dramedy Big Eden, insightful drama Certain Women, Robert Redford’s The Horse Whisperer, The Miseducation of Cameron Post, and Kevin Costner’s underrated western Open Range.
Nebraska – Election
Sometimes the smallest towns have the biggest drama. That’s certainly true in Alexander Payne’s Election, a sharp and brittle Nebraska-set high school comedy starring Reese Witherspoon and Matthew Broderick. It starts as a simple local school election, but it gets ugly quickly.
Nebraska runner-up: Caddyshack, the comedy classic Harold Ramis starring Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield, Ted Knight, Bill Murray, and a dancing gopher yucking it up on the links.
Nevada – Ocean’s Eleven (2001)
It oozes style and confidence. It’s jam-packed with movie stars. And it’s likely more fun than an average night on the Strip. It’s Ocean’s Eleven, Steven Soderbergh’s champagne-toasted remake of the Frank Sinatra caper. And it makes Nevada look good.
Nevada runner-ups: The Hangover, Hard Eight, The Misfits, Casino, The Cooler, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Honeymoon in Vegas, Leaving Las Vegas, Viva Las Vegas, Shanghai Noon, and Tremors.
New Hampshire – Jumanji
What if your favorite board game was real? That’s the irresistible premise at the heart of Jumanji, the Robin Williams-starring family film about a New Hampshire family rocked by the real-life perils of a jungle game. Also — it’s surprisingly touching at the end.
New Hampshire runner-ups: dark comedy What About Bob?, cop drama Affliction (1997), Stanley Kubrick Lolita (1962) adaptation, On Golden Pond (1981), and the intense adaptation of The Rules of Attraction.
New Jersey – Clerks
Kevin Smith tapped into something primal when he made Clerks, his ode to New Jersey slacker living. Who among us hasn’t toiled away at a dead end job, staying sane by swapping stories about our favorite movies and our love lives?
New Jersey runner-ups: Garden State. Or: Snake Eyes, Cinderella Man, Be Kind Rewind, Cop Land, Don Jon, Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, On the Waterfront, and Welcome to the Dollhouse.
New Mexico – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
It is, arguably, the best American western ever made. And it’s made by an Italian filmmaker. Set in New Mexico, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly solidified an icon in Clint Eastwood’s Man With No Name (introduced in the previous two entries of the Dollars Trilogy).
New Mexico runner-ups: Ace in the Hole, High Noon (1952), The Hills Have Eyes (2006), The Man Who Fell to Earth, The Missing, The Outlaw, Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid, Ride the Pink Horse, The Tao of Steve, and Them!
New York – Ghostbusters (1984)
Who ya gonna call? Frankly, there are tons of New York-set films that could answer. But the shaggy, spooky charms of Ghostbusters gets the edge for its influence of what NYC is to many generations of viewers. We ain’t afraid of New York.
New York runner-ups: Do the Right Thing, Taxi Driver, Dog Day Afternoon, Goodfellas, Saturday Night Fever, Coming to America, A Bronx Tale, Elf, American Psycho, Basquiat, The Apartment, Juice, King Kong (1933), Midnight Cowboy, and When Harry Met Sally.
North Carolina – Blue Velvet
David Lynch’s Blue Velvet ain’t for the faint of heart. But if you can handle the North Carolina descent into madness, obsession, and Pabst Blue Ribbon, there’s a wonderful, blackly funny film to enjoy. Is Lynch, like, okay?
North Carolina runner-ups: horror classics Cape Fear (either version), Carrie (1976), The Descent; and the less scary Bull Durham, Cold Mountain, George Washington, Nell, or Norma Rae.
North Dakota – Fargo
While much of the Coen Brothers’ Fargo takes place in Minnesota (where its contagious accent comes from), the criminals of chaos (the perfect odd couple pairing of Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare) are recruited from North Dakota. Fargo looms over us all.
If you’re not into in the Coen Brothers’ crime masterpiece… um… can we interest you in Leprechaun? You know, the goofy slasher about a leprechaun that terrorizes Jennifer Aniston? No? Well, Hollywood, set more films in North Dakota already!
Ohio – A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
A trippy horror classic, Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street feels like it doesn’t take place anywhere. And yet, the Elm Street is, in fact, in friendly, suburban Ohio. 1, 2, Freddy’s coming for you. 3, 4, live in Ohio some more.
Ohio runner-ups: Room, dark high school flicks Heathers and The Faculty, baseball classic Major League, the musical Bye Bye Birdie, the weird and wild Gummo, and classic comedy The Man Who Came to Dinner.
Oklahoma – Oklahoma! (1955)
C’mon. It’s a movie musical where the biggest moment comes from literally spelling out the name of the state. Of course Oklahoma! is gonna be our number one pick for the state. Oh what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful film.
Oklahoma runner-ups: Twister, the cow-slinging disaster flick; The Outsiders, Francis Ford Coppola’s teen classic; Cimarron, either version; and epic western Where the Red Fern Grows (1974).
Oregon – One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
Jack Nicholson’s character in The Shining definitely belongs in a mental hospital. But no one belongs in the Oregon hospital depicted in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, a wild, pitch black comedy classic. Nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher) will give you the creeps.
Oregon runner-ups: 1980s family films The Goonies and Short Circuit, coming-of-age masterpieces Stand By Me and The Edge of Seventeen, Gus Van Sant’s Drugstore Cowboy and Elephant, and crowd-pleasers Mr. Holland’s Opus and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.
Pennsylvania – Rocky
Ever run up the staircase of the Philadelphia Museum of Art? They’ll take a lot out of you. But they were nothing for Rocky Balboa, Sylvester Stallone’s lead character in his ode to Pennsylvania determination, Rocky. It’s a movie that makes you feel proud.
Pennsylvania runner-ups: The Sixth Sense, Groundhog Day, Best in Show, Blow Out, Philadelphia, Silver Linings Playbook, Night of the Living Dead (1968), Dawn of the Dead (1978), The Deer Hunter, and My Girl.
Rhode Island – The Conjuring
Hollywood loves to make New England spooky. And it doesn’t get any spookier than The Conjuring, James Wan’s based-on-a-true-story (allegedly) ghost story about a very haunted Rhode Island house. Tread lightly, those who fear jump scares.
Rhode Island runner-ups: Steve Carell dramedy Dan in Real Life, more-fun-than-spooky The Witches of Eastwick, boxing drama Bleed for This, star-studded musical comedy High Society (1956), and Outside Providence.
South Carolina – The Notebook
Is South Carolina’s biggest export handkerchiefs? Because you’ll need one after watching the Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling weepie The Notebook. It is an almost unfairly romantic love story, with the South Carolina backdrop providing lots of splendor.
South Carolina runner-ups: 1980s dramedy The Big Chill, Mel Gibson’s Revolutionary War action flick, The Patriot; progressive, coming-of-age drama The Secret Life of Bees; and gory, funny horror flick Slither.
South Dakota – Badlands
On paper, Badlands is a gritty crime drama about two lovers (Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek) on a murder spree. But on screen, director Terrence Malick transforms the subject into a poetic ode to love and America, with South Dakota serving as a character itself.
South Dakota runner-up: Alfred Hitchcock’s North by Northwest only has one sequence in South Dakota, but it’s a biggie, as Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint hang from Mount Rushmore!
Tennessee – Hustle & Flow
Memphis gets a love letter in Craig Brewer’s Hustle & Flow, starring Terrence Howard as an aspiring rapper and Taraji P. Henson as an unlikely singer. The film bleeds and sweats Tennessee culture, and it’s downright inspirational without becoming preachy.
Tennessee runner-ups: indie crime drama Hard Choices; Sandra Bullock football drama The Blind Side (based on a true story); Jim Jarmusch’s indie comedy, Mystery Train; the legal drama, Inherit the Wind; and Robert Altman’s country music epic, Nashville.
Texas – Dazed and Confused
On the last day of school, a group of Texas teens pal around, goof off, and grow up just a little. Dazed and Confused was a calling card for director Richard Linklater and its cast of rising stars, including instantly iconic Matthew McConaughey.
Like everything in Texas, the list of Lone Star State classics is a big one.
Texas runner-ups: The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Brewster McCloud, Local Hero, Reality Bites, Rushmore, Miss Congeniality, Blood Simple, Bubba Ho-Tep, Friday Night Lights, From Dusk Till Dawn, Giant,, The Last Picture Show, No Country for Old Men, and Varsity Blues.
Utah – Footloose (1984)
For one small-town Utah city, dancing is straight up illegal. Can Kevin Bacon change this arcane law? Sorry to spoil, but after a particularly dramatic series of emotional dances, he gets the entire town to kick off their Sunday shoes and get Footloose.
Utah runner-ups: James Franco getting stuck under a big rock in 127 Hours, wackadoo cult horror classic Carnival of Souls, and the underrated Matthew Lillard dramedy SLC Punk!
Vermont – Dead Poets Society
When Robin Williams climbs the desk in the Vermont-set drama Dead Poets Society, it’s emotional. When all of his students do at the very end, we run the risk of flooding the world with our tears. O captain, our captain, thank you.
Vermont runner-ups: White Christmas (like the song!); David Mamet’s satire, State and Main; cult comedy Super Troopers; Alfred Hitchcock’s rare comedy, The Trouble With Harry, and throwback shocker What Lies Beneath, starring Harrison Ford and Michelle Pfeiffer.
Virginia – Remember the Titans
Put it this way: If Denzel Washington was our football coach in Virginia, we’d spend a lot less time ranking movies based on state and a lot more time, like, exercising. Remember the Titans rules, Washington rules, the musical sequence rules, full stop.
Virginia runner-ups: Disney’s Pocahontas; Loving, the story of an interracial couple’s fight against racism; Hidden Figures, an inspiring NASA story; and the mindbending Donnie Darko.
Washington – Sleepless in Seattle
Tom Hanks lives in Washington. Meg Ryan lives in New York. And they absolutely love each other. What are they gonna do? You’ll have to watch Nora Ephron’s classic romcom Sleepless in Seattle to find out, you lovebird, you.
Washington runner-ups: 10 Things I Hate About You, Fear, House of Games, The Ring, Safety Not Guaranteed, Air Bud, Dante’s Peak, First Blood, McCabe & Mrs. Miller, and The Stepfather (1987).
West Virginia – Logan Lucky
Many Hollywood comedies set in the south paint southerners as dumb bumpkins. Steven Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky, about some star-studded West Virginians (Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Daniel Craig) who plan a heist, paints them with surprisingly smart strokes. While also being incredibly funny.
West Virginia runner-ups: the comedic Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, which hilariously rips horror movies to shreds; heartwarming football drama We Are Marshall; and space drama October Sky (with Jake Gyllenhaal).
Wisconsin – Bridesmaids (2011)
There hadn’t been a performance like Melissa McCarthy’s in awhile. She tears Bridesmaids to shreds with her fearless work. But the film around her, set in Wisconsin, rises to her talent and thensome. It’s a contemporary comedy classic.
Wisconsin runner-ups: Bernie Mac playing baseball in Mr. 3000, Ryan Gosling in love with an adult doll in Lars and the Real Girl, and Dan Aykroyd and John Candy getting in trouble in The Great Outdoors.
Wyoming – Brokeback Mountain
We can’t quit Brokeback Mountain, and we don’t want to, either. Ang Lee’s heartbreaking love story, set in the mountains of Wyoming, features incredible performances from Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal. It’s a beautiful, powerful, emotion-driven movie.
Wyoming runner-ups: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Cat Ballou, The Hateful Eight, Shane, and Unforgiven.
