Kelly Reichardt is one of narrative film’s greatest poets. She carves such powerful and meaningful images with real rusticity, and her latest offering, Certain Women, is no exception to the rule. Winner of the Official Competition at the BFI London Film Festival last October, this stunningly quiet and ambient film is easily the best thing this writer saw during the event, and thankfully now it has gained a UK release.
Thanks to the kind people at Park Circus, we can provide you with the stunning UK trailer and quad poster for the film which stars Laura Dern, Michelle Williams, Kristen Stewart, Lily Gladstone, and Jared Harris. Take a look below.
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.
Certain Women opens in select UK cinemas from 3rd March, 2017, and trust us, this is an authentic American masterpiece that you cannot afford to miss.
