Synopsis

Inspired by true events, a wilderness guide in the 19th century leads three young couples and their children along the Oregon Trail to the new frontier of America's West. The film explores the tensions and hardships the group endures as they journey towards the promise of a better life. Hunger, betrayal, and an unforgiving landscape are just a few of the obstacles that the characters face on their venture. Director Kelly Reichardt's latest film may appear to be a dramatic departure from her previous work, but every frame embodies the footprint of Reichardt's thoughtful and challenging style of filmmaking. Michelle Williams offers further proof that she is one of her generation's most fearless and gifted actresses, and Paul Dano gives a performance of exceptional power. "Meek's Cutoff" is a penetrating and original work from one of America's most uniquely gifted filmmakers.
