Synopsis:
The expanses of the American West take center stage in this intimately observed triptych from Kelly Reichardt.
Adapted from three short stories by Maile Meloy and unfolding in self-contained but interlocking episodes, Certain Women navigates the subtle shifts in personal desire and social expectation that unsettle the circumscribed lives of its characters: a lawyer (Laura Dern) forced to subdue a troubled client; a wife and mother (Michelle Williams) whose plans to construct her dream home reveal fissures in her marriage; and a night-school teacher (Kristen Stewart) who forms a tenuous bond with a lonely ranch hand (Lily Gladstone), whose longing for connection delivers an unexpected jolt of emotional imm ediacy. With unassuming craft, Reichardt captures the rhythms of daily life in smalltown Montana through these fine-grained portraits of women trapped within the landscape's wide-open spaces.

What a waste of Montana and good actors - Certain Women review by blackrocket2000

Spoiler Alert
19/08/2017

I was really pleased to receive this DVD. Had planned to catch Certain Women at the cinema, but that didn't work out. Have long dreamed of visiting Montana. This film poured cold water on that. Many scenes are at night, or in dimly lit spaces. It was hard to see what was going on. And we learn little about these women and their lives. Laura Dern's character is patient and compassionate, but seems wasted. Michelle William's role is a stronger woman, but what does she acheive? Then we have a lonely ranch hand and a young lawyer trying to earn a few bucks in a job that doesn't work out. How this got an award and a 100% rating beats me. Haven't seen a good film in a while. But that was Lion. Brilliant.

Thoroughly enjoyable - Certain Women review by Philbuff

A beautifully crafted & acted film about everyday dramas in the lives of ordinary people - no less intensely felt for not being the stuff of headlines. Absorbing to watch, it reverberates long afterwards.

Paint dry - Certain Women review by JD

Spoiler Alert

Worthy, but a bit like watching paint dry.

The good news is that the acting is first rate and there is no CGI.
