The Son AMC 2017 Pierce Brosnan

Based on Philipp Meyer’s acclaimed novel, The Son is a multi-generational epic telling of the story of America’s birth as a superpower through the bloody rise and fall of one Texas family.

Pierce Brosnan portrays Eli, the charismatic patriarch of the McCullough family. As a child, he was kidnapped and raised among the Comanche Native American tribe and applies the brutal Comanche worldview to his business dealings.

He was born on the day Texas became an independent Republic, earning the nickname “First Son of Texas” and is a relic of the Wild West, uneasy with the inexorable taming of Texas and the uncertain future of his legacy.
