meeks-cutoff-1-586

(2010) dir Kelly Recihardt w/Michelle Williams, Bruce Greenwood, Will Patton, Zoe Kazan, Paul Dano [104 min; 35mm]
In the earliest days of the Oregon Trail, a wagon train of three families becomes lost in the high plain desert after being mislead by their guide. A subtle western from acclaimed indie director Reichardt (Wendy & Lucy).

“Told largely in long shot, it’s a painfully, beautifully slow film, which is understandable given the time, place, and situation.” – Ty Burr, Boston Globe

“A bracingly original foray into territory that remains, in every sense, unsettled.” – A.O. Scott, New York Times

“Meticulous and immersive, Meek’s Cutoff feels like history in three dimensions.” – Scott Tobias, AV Club
