In Certain Women, director Kelly Reichardt (Meek’s Cutoff, Wendy And Lucy) adapts the short stories of Maile Meloy to chart the lives of three Montana women, played by Laura Dern, Michelle Williams, and Kristen Stewart. Dern’s revolves around a situation with a client; Williams’ involves trying to buy sandstone; and Stewart’s features a relationship between a layer and a ranch hand. After seeing it at Sundance, A.A. Dowd wrote that “the material is perfectly suited to the filmmaker’s interests and strengths, its compact mini-narratives allowing her to focus almost exclusively on tiny details of character and environment.”
