Certain Women

(USA, 2016, 107 min.)

Director: Kelly Reichardt

Producers: Neil Kopp, Vincent Savino, Anish Savjani

Cast: Kristen Stewart, Michelle Williams, Laura Dern, Jared Harris, James Le Gros, Rene Auberjonois, Lily Gladstone

Set with great regional specificity in Montana, the film richly portrays several women at a personal or professional crossroads. Gina (Michelle Williams), has a marriage that is faltering after buying a new home; Laura (Laura Dern), a lawyer contending with a volatile client; and Jamie (Lily Gladstone), a young ranch hand besotted with Beth (Kristen Stewart), her adult education teacher. These complex characters have lives that intersect in subtle ways, and all share dreams and desires for something more or different from what they already possess.
