HANCOCK -- Last Cowboy Standing is the feature film of this month’s Nordic Film Series at the Finlandia University Finnish American Heritage Center, Hancock. The film will be shown twice -- at 2 p.m. and at 6 p.m. -- on Thursday, Feb. 10.

Released in 2009, Last Cowboy Standing (Skavabölen Pojat) is a family drama about two brothers in conflict.
