Certain Women Trailer

"No one understands what my life has become." IFC Films has debuted the first official trailer for Certain Women, the latest film from American filmmaker Kelly Reichardt which first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. The film is about the lives of three women which intersect in small-town America, "where each is imperfectly blazing a trail." The indie drama stars Lily Gladstone, Laura Dern, Kristen Stewart, Michelle Williams, James Le Gros, Jared Harris and Rene Auberjonois. This definitely has a very raw and realistic feel to it, and that's thanks to Reichardt. I'm personally not a fan of her work, but other critics lover her and have been raving about this film as well. Stewart is barely in this trailer, it seems to be about newcomer Lily Gladstone who looks impressive. If you're curious, take a look.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Kelly Reichardt's Certain Women, direct from YouTube:

Certain Women drops us into a handful of intersecting lives across Montana. A lawyer (Laura Dern) tries to diffuse a hostage situation and calm her disgruntled client (Jared Harris), who feels slighted by a workers' compensation settlement. A married couple (Michelle Williams and James Le Gros) breaks ground on a new home but exposes marital fissures when they try to persuade an elderly man to sell his stockpile of sandstone. A ranch hand (Lily Gladstone) forms an attachment to a young lawyer (Kristen Stewart), who inadvertently finds herself teaching a twice-weekly adult education class, four hours from her home. Certain Women is both written and directed by filmmaker Kelly Reichardt, of the films Old Joy, Wendy and Lucy, Meek's Cutoff and Night Moves previously. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. IFC Films will release Certain Women in limited theaters starting October 14th in the fall.

    This is what I was talking about regarding involved with these unique filmmakers. I side with Alex in that I too am not personally a fan of Kelly Reichardt's work, but acknowledge her talents and vision to keep making these small personal films that she does instead of folding and trying to be the next big female director and making Wonder Woman or other such nonsense. She does seem to have an audience; she speaks to some...and then, of course, here's Stewart, involved again with another unique and interesting filmmaker.
    • ;D I acknowledge that she is trying to be part of "intelligent" movies. She was pretty decent in Camp X-Ray. But man! Her face bugs me. She looks like a teen goth. She needs to take smiling courses.
      • Bo
        That's very funny, tarek. I don't think she's a like pin-up as you mentioned elsewhere. She's no Rhona Mitra or Kate Beckinsale, that's for sure. I still find the little gal interesting though and did like Camp X-Ray and applaud her taking that on especially with the unforgiving political nature of it and the madness of the American masses around the whole current battle with Islamic Radicals. Any Muslim is a bad Muslim to way too many people in this country. It's just fear. Fear of Death and the denial of that fear.

        I respect her for sticking to the brooding look. I strongly think most women in Hollywood are pinned into boxes where they have to act a certain way for the people. I respect Stewart's commitment to always looking dower and sad. I don't really think she is a peach or anything, but she is doing her own thing and that is cool too.
        • I respect your respect for her. And I didn't mean to be mean. It's just sad faces are quite depressing to me.
      There must be something to her passion that directors find appealing. She has worked with some heavy talent, that I feel, would not have put up with a lot of diva-like behavior.
      • Bo
        I've never heard around the ole 'grapevine' that she engages in diva-like behavior. I wouldn't put much faith in anything read in the tabloids etc. Just sayin'.....
    I forgot how good Michele Williams is as an actor. She needs a higher output of great films!

    Some nice female actresses in there. And the tone is right. Yes, it is poetic, so what. Looks ok by me ...

    Sorry for the delay in responding to this reply of yours to one of mine, tarek. It seems I didn't get an alert that I usually get and just happened on this by chance today... four days And I wholeheartedly agree with your whole first paragraph. Very well put and nothing to forgive re: approximate translation...I loved the French idiom. It is a bit of a sad joke to our intelligence, but when one thinks about the state of the whole world today that is really an insult to our intelligence. Cheers...hopefully.
