  • Director: Kelly Reichardt
  • Genre(s): Drama
  • Rating: R
  • Running Time: 107 min.

This look at three women striving to forge their own paths amidst the wide-open plains of the American Northwest follows a lawyer (Laura Dern) who finds herself contending with both office sexism and a hostage situation; a wife and mother (Michelle Williams) whose determination to build her dream home puts her at odds with the men in her life; and a young law student (Kristen Stewart) who forms an ambiguous bond with a lonely ranch hand (Lily Gladstone). As their stories intersect in subtle but powerful ways, a portrait emerges of flawed, but strong-willed individuals in the process of defining themselves. [IFC Films]

"The characters are really minimalist masterpieces, sculpted, polished and uncompromisingly female."
- John Anderson, Wall Street Journal
"From her terrific debut feature River of Grass through Meek's Cutoff and Wendy and Lucy, Reichardt has given us incomplete, quietly suffering women who feel their way into change."
- Ella Taylor, NPR
"The cumulative power of Reichardt's film, beautifully acted by Laura Dern, Michelle Williams, Kristen Stewart and Lily Gladstone, is undeniable and quietly devastating."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Even as the four protagonists struggle, often in vain, to get someone else to pay attention, Reichardt's camera is right there, watching and listening."
- Dana Stevens, Slate
"Conveys the uncanny sense of ordinary American lives being observed in intimate, unadorned closeup."
- Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
"It's hard to recall a movie with such a precise, immersive sense of place, and the very specific mood that comes with it."
- Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"The three sections of Kelly Reichardt's new film-set in Montana and adapted from stories by Maile Meloy-are consistent in their restrained tone but divergent in their impact."
- Richard Brody, New Yorker
"Certain Women is a kind, loving, and deeply moving portrait of big-hearted small-town people."
- April Wolfe, Village Voice
"Kelly Reichardt's wonderful triptych of female character studies confirms her status as the quietest of great American filmmakers."
- Guy Lodge, Variety
