Film - Certain Women


Winner of Best Film at the 2016 London Film Festival, Certain Women gets a cinema release on 3rd March...

It’s the off-season in Livingston, Montana, where lawyer Laura Wells (Laura Dern), called away from a tryst with her married lover, finds herself defending a local labourer named Fuller (Jared Harris). Fuller was a victim of a workplace accident, and his ongoing medical issues have led him to hire Laura to see if she can reopen his case, although he takes drastic action to get his demands met.

Elsewhere, Gina (Michelle Williams) and Ryan (James le Gros) have decided to build a new home outside of town. With their disinterested daughter Guthrie (Sara Rodier) in tow, they visit Albert (Rene Auberjonois), an elderly family friend who seems to be fading into senility.

On a horse ranch just outside of the tiny town of Belfry, a long drive from Livingston, a young female ranch hand (Lily Gladstone) takes care of animals, isolated from the rest of the world. She develops a fascination with Elizabeth (Kristen Stewart), a recently graduated lawyer based in Livingston and looking to pick up extra money by offering legal workshops for teachers.

Directed by Kelly Reichardt and set against the Big Sky backdrop of southern Montana, Certain Women reflects both the immense scope and profound stillness of its setting and examines the moments both large and small that make up the lives of strong, independent women looking for ways to understand and shape the world around them.

Watch the trailer and we'll have a review for you soon.
