Certain Women



A lawyer has to deal with an increasingly agitated client; a mother sources raw materials to build her new family home; and a horse rancher comes to terms with her developing feelings for an out-of-towner in this film anthology based on the short stories of Maile Meloy.

Leading US independent auteur Kelly Reichardt returns with yet another understated and deeply engaging work. Her knack of infusing the wild expanse of the little-seen US state of Montana provides a remarkable backdrop in telling these intimate stories. This quietly moving and sensitive film is a love letter to the kind of strength and resilience displayed by women in navigating their day-to-day lives. The resulting portrait is a work of sublime resonance, an edifying testament to the femininity in all of humanity.
