Independent filmmaker Kelly Reichardt’s latest film, selected for the Sundance, Toronto and New York Film Festivals, “confirms her status as cinema’s foremost poet of the American Northwest.” (Screen Daily) Certain Women is a nuanced exploration of the lives of four women living in Montana, lives that intersect in subtle but powerful ways, creating a portrait of flawed, but strong-willed individuals in the process of defining themselves. Native American actress Lily Gladstone plays a lonely ranch hand who forms an ambiguous bond with a young lawyer, played by Kristen Stewart, and she will be at the screening to discuss the production.
The event is cosponsored with American Studies, Dept of PMA, FGSS, AIISP, Dept of English, Native American Students at Cornell and Akwe:kon.
The film will open at Cinemapolis in downtown Ithaca for a week(s) long run on Friday, November 11.
