What is The Dead Don’t Hurt About?

Set against the backdrop of the western U.S. frontier in the 1860s, The Dead Don’t Hurt is a poignant tale of star-crossed lovers. Vivienne Le Coudy (Krieps), a fiercely independent French-Canadian woman, embarks on a relationship with Danish immigrant Holger Olsen (Mortensen). After meeting Olsen in San Francisco, she agrees to travel with him to his home near the quiet town of Elk Flats, Nevada, where they begin their life together.

The outbreak of the Civil War soon disrupts their peace, as Olsen makes the fateful decision to fight for the Union. Left to fend for herself in a town controlled by the corrupt Mayor Rudolph Schiller (Huston) and his unscrupulous business partner, powerful rancher Alfred Jeffries (Dillahunt), Vivienne faces numerous challenges. Among them is Jeffries’ violent, wayward son Weston (McLeod), who aggressively pursues her despite her determined resistance.

When Olsen returns from the war, he and Vivienne must confront and reconcile with their changed selves. Blending elements of a tragic love story with a nuanced depiction of the struggle between revenge and forgiveness, The Dead Don’t Hurt portrays a passionate woman standing her ground in an unforgiving world dominated by ruthless men.
