The movie tells the story of four men heading to a town called Silverado. Once there, all four confront their pasts while defending the town against unscrupulous men.
The movie marks the first starring role for Costner and includes a small part by John Cleese of Monty Python as the sheriff of a small town.
An excellent movie and well worth the effort to see. Kasden is in his element with a large cast and expertly weaves the story lines to make a wonderful movie. One of my family's 'repeat viewing" movies; it never gets old.
