Adapting three short stories by Montana writer Maile Meloy, Kelly Reichardts’ quietly resonate film, explores the interconnected lives of four disparate Montana women. Expertly and delicately plotted, Certain Woman captures subtly transformative periods in each of their lives.
Plotted across three vignettes - a lawyer (Laura Dern) is badgered by an obstinate client (Jared Harris), a mother (Michelle Williams) acquires a pile of sandstone bricks from an elderly family friend and Jamie (Lily Gladstone) a ranch hand who becomes besotted with Beth (Kristen Stewart), a young lawyer who is teaching a night class.
Framed amidst the beautiful Montana landscape, the film chronicles their frustration, success and desires. Certain Women is a quiet, understated film which belies a unique emotional depth.
