A Woman's Western

Local connections follow film to big screen

David Thomas Jenkins plays Vince Wagner and Stef Dawson is heroine Julie Richards in “Painted Woman,” a film by James Cotten, based on a novel by Dusty Richards. A Bentonville Film Festival selection, it debuts on the big screen this weekend.

In a classic Western, Julie Richards might have been a minor character -- a "kept" woman with an abusive past and a heart of gold.
