2010, Oscilloscope Pictures, 104 min, USA, Dir: Kelly Reichardt
Shot in the Academy ratio with stark, spare elegance, director Kelly Reichardt's slow-burn tone poem following a group of lost pioneers in the barren desert of 1845 Oregon is enigmatic frontier cinema at its best. The stellar cast includes Michelle Williams as bonneted, tough-as-nails wagoner Emily Tetherow, Rod Rondeaux as the silently impassive native man encountered and then captured by the group, and Bruce Greenwood as scruffy, McCabe-like blowhard Stephen Meek, whose disastrous trail misguiding is either plainly incompetent or purely malicious. With Zoe Kazan, Paul Dano, Shirley Henderson and Will Patton. "A bracingly original foray into territory that remains, in every sense, unsettled." - A.O. Scott, The New York Times.New Release! Not on DVD. Screening format: 35mm Screening: Friday, July 8 - 7:00 & 9:30 PM; Saturday, July 9 - 7:00 & 9:30 PM and Sunday, July 10 - 7:00 & 9:30 PM.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rhNrz2hX_o
