Danger comes with the territory
Acclaimed screenwriter Taylor Sheridan makes his directorial debut with the final film in his trilogy of screenplays on the American frontier (including Sicario & Hell or High Water). Academy Award®-nominee, Jeremy Renner is Cory Lambert, a local game tracker who stumbles upon the body of a murdered teenage girl, frozen in the desolate wilderness of the Wind River Indian Reservation. Still trying to come to terms with the death of his own teenage daughter, Cory is forced, most brutally, to confront his own past. When rookie FBI agent Jane Banner (Elizabeth Olsen) is assigned to the case, she enlists Cory’s help to navigate the unfamiliar terrain and unforgiving conditions as the two venture deep into a world ravaged by violence and the elements. WIND RIVER is a stark look at life on the edge of an imposing wilderness, where the rule of law is eclipsed by the laws of nature.
"There's something to be said for a well-crafted motion picture, cinematically astute, that demands that we sit down and pay attention for a solid two hours or so, with no intermittent fridge runs." - Time Magazine
"Sheridan's gift for popping, antagonistic dialogue pays big dividends in the film's best scenes-many involving frustrations of law-enforcement protocol-and it's hard to write off the Elmore Leonard-ish economy of the plotting." - AV Club
