Certain Women
First screened in June 2016
Director: Kelly Reichardt. Cast: Laura Dern, Michelle Williams, Lily Gladstone, Kristen Stewart, Jared Harris, James Le Gros, René Auberjonois, Edelen McWilliams, John Getz, James Jordan, Matt McTighe, Zena Dell Lowe. Screenplay: Kelly Reichardt (based on selected stories from Both Ways Is the Only Way I Want It by Maile Meloy).

Twitter Capsule: Fun to see Reichardt in a quiet but looser mode. Actors really respond, especially Gladstone and Stewart. It lingers.

VOR:   Simply telling women's or non-urban stories shouldn't feel bold. It does, though, which makes Certain Women valuable. New tone for Reichardt.
