Synopsis

Kelly Reichardt writes and directs this US drama starring Michelle Williams, Kristen Stewart and Laura Dern. Based on short stories by Maile Meloy, the film follows the lives of several women in Montana as they become woven together as each of them makes their own way through the obstacles presented to them. Small-town lawyer Laura Wells (Dern) is being harassed by a disgruntled client who was involved in a workplace accident but refuses to accept her professional advice about the settlement of his claim. Meanwhile, married couple Gina and Ryan Lewis (Williams and James Le Gros) return home from a camping trip with their teenage daughter Guthrie (Sara Rodier). Unhappy with her life, Gina pours all of her efforts into building a woodland retreat using only repurposed resources. Elsewhere, a rancher (Lily Gladstone) strikes up a relationship with young lawyer Beth Travis (Stewart) after stumbling into her class.
