Film: The Three Burials Of Melquiades Estrada

The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada is a 2005 film directed by and starring Tommy Lee Jones.

Melquiades Estrada, a Mexican working as a ranch hand in Texas, is killed through a misunderstanding, and his body hidden in a shallow grave. After his body is discovered, it is given a proper burial, but Melquiades' best friend, Pete (played by Jones), who knows that he wanted to be buried in Mexico, decides to steal the body and take it back to Melquiades' home town — with the extremely unwilling assistance of the man (Barry Pepper) who killed him.
