Jane Hammond (Natalie Portman) is a typical frontier woman, a hardened wife willing to stand by her man (Noah Emmerich), a reformed outlaw with his former gang — under new leadership (Ewan McGregor) — breathing down his neck. So when things heat up, Jane solicits assistance from old flame Dan Frost (Joel Edgerton). As a director, Gavin O’Connor generally revels in the heated competition between macho figures, but this time out, he’s shifting the perspective to a femme caught in the middle who refuses to simply stand by and let the boys handle the situation. You go, Jane! (Opens Friday at Esquire Theatre) (R) Not screened in time for review
