Unlike other critics who adore her previous efforts such as Old Joy and Wendy and Lucy, I think it’s Meek’s Cutoff where I became officially smitten by the talent of West Coast auteur Kelly Reichardt. I think she might make ripples into waves again this year – let’s hope this lawsuit gets thrown out.
Gist: A drama centered on three environmentalists who plot to blow up a dam.
Release Date: Currently filming, I think this will take the same route that Meek’s did – Venice, TIFF and NYFF.
