Winner of this year's London Film Festival, Certain Women, directed by the fiercely independent Kelly Reichardt(Meek's Cutoff, Wendy and Lucy) is about three women striving to forge their own paths amidst the wide-open plains of Big Sky Montana: a lawyer (Laura Dern) who finds herself contending with both office sexism and a hostage situation; a wife and mother (Michelle Williams) whose determination to build her dream home puts her at odds with the men in her life; and a young law student (Kristen Stewart) who forms an ambiguous bond with a lonely ranch hand (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. The film is an adaptation of three stories by Maile Meloy. 107 minutes.
