USA – Drama – Year: 2016 – Running time: 107 mins
Reichardt’s sixth feature is set in the American northwest and focuses on four women whose stories are low-key and separate, but whose lives overlap and brush against each other. The tone is intimate, drawing the viewer in with subtle, deliberately anti-dramatic observation. Laura Dern, Michelle Williams, Lily Gladstone and Kristen Stewart feature in what might be seen as an unassuming masterpiece, even a ‘minor miracle’ as one critic has claimed.
Kelly Reichardt’s wonderful triptych of female character studies confirms her status as the quietest of great American filmmakers.
