Dir: Kelly Reichardt
Starring: Laura Dern, Michelle Williams, Lily Gladstone, Kristen Stewart
The lives of resilient and strong-willed women in the prairie towns of present-day Montana are depicted with compassion and a muted sensitivity in this latest feature by Kelly Reichardt. Three slightly interconnected stories involve a lawyer plagued by a difficult male client and a troubled private life, a businesswoman determined to create her dream home in the country, despite the reservations of her family, and a burgeoning relationship between a lonely ranch hand and the female teacher at the evening class she attends. Do not expect drama, however. Set amid a landscape both beautiful and bleak, these tales are low-key and intimate.
