About the Movie
One of America's foremost filmmakers, Kelly Reichardt (Wendy and Lucy, Meek's Cutoff) directs a remarkable ensemble cast led by Michelle Williams, Kristen Stewart, and Laura Dern in this stirring look at three women striving to forge their own paths amidst the wide-open plains of the American Northwest: a lawyer (Dern) who finds herself contending with both office sexism and a hostage situation; a wife and mother (Williams) whose determination to build her dream home puts her at odds with the men in her life; and a young law student (Stewart) who forms an ambiguous bond with a lonely ranch hand (radiant newcomer Lily Gladstone). As their stories intersect in subtle but powerful ways, a portrait emerges of flawed, but strong-willed individuals in the process of defining themselves.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: If the characters here are often sparing with their words, or even withholding, the visuals speak volumes.
Fresh: As with all of Reichardt's films, the gems are in the smallest moments -- the half smiles, the non-reactions and the silences between two people barely connecting.
Fresh: It's a tiptoe of a movie, but it's as elegant and graceful as the vast Montana landscape.
Fresh: These stories takes shape against the backdrop of everyday tasks and ritual-like chores; these women can't transcend the lives that they have committed to, but just a hint of recognition can unleash a sense of the unexpected and profound.
This movie is a very slow burn, but it's all worth it in the end. It's a great observation of small town women and the human condition in general.
