Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams (Blue Valentine, Brokeback Mountain) stars alongside Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood) and Bruce Greenwood (I'm Not There, Capote) in the latest acclaimed film from award-winning filmmaker, Kelly Reichardt (Wendy and Lucy, Old Joy).

The year is 1845 and a wagon team of three families is setting off across the sparse terrain of the Oregon desert, in northwest USA. They are guided by mountain man Stephen Meek, who claims to know a short cut, but when they become lost in the dry rock and sage, their faith in their guide, and in each other, weakens. After days of wandering, suffering the hardships of the inhospitable landscape and unable to find water, a Native American wanderer crosses their path. The pioneers are torn between trusting their guide or a man who has always been seen as the enemy.

Beautifully shot, Christopher Blauvelt was the cinematographer, the film has a mesmerizing quality. with attention to detail rather than high action. Reference was made to many of the dairies written by the pioneering women of the time.
