First Cow Trailer

"We have to take what we can when the taking is good." A24 has debuted the first official trailer for First Cow, the latest from acclaimed filmmaker Kelly Reichardt (of Old Joy, Wendy and Lucy, Meek's Cutoff, Night Moves). This premiered at the Telluride & New York Film Festivals last fall, and is arriving in US theaters in March this year. Not too long of a wait for those excited for Reichardt's new work. The film is indeed about a big ole cow, what a surprise. A loner and cook named Cookie, played by John Magaro, has traveled west and joined a group of fur trappers in Oregon Territory, though he only finds connection with a Chinese immigrant - played by Orion Lee. The men collaborate on a business, although its longevity is reliant upon the participation of a wealthy landowner's prized milking cow. The small cast includes Alia Shawkat, Scott Shepherd, Toby Jones, and Ewen Bremner. A very unique film that's worth a watch.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Kelly Reichardt's First Cow, direct from A24's YouTube:

First Cow Film

Reichardt once again trains her perceptive and patient eye on the Pacific Northwest, this time evoking an authentically hardscrabble early nineteenth century way of life. A taciturn loner and skilled cook (John Magaro) has traveled west and joined a group of fur trappers in Oregon Territory, though he only finds true connection with a Chinese immigrant (Orion Lee) also seeking his fortune; soon the two collaborate on a successful business, although its longevity is reliant upon the clandestine participation of a nearby wealthy landowner’s prized milking cow. First Cow is directed by acclaimed American filmmaker Kelly Reichardt, director of the indie films River of Grass, Ode, Old Joy, Wendy and Lucy, Meek's Cutoff, Night Moves, and Certain Women previously. The screenplay is by Kelly Reichardt and Jonathan Raymond. This initially premiered at both the Telluride & New York Film Festivals last year. A24 will release Reichardt's First Cow in select US theaters starting on March 6th, 2020 coming up soon. Interested in watching this?

I admire this lady and her unique vision and making the films she wants to make and not allow herself to be hired to direct something like Wonder Woman or what not. However, try as I have to like her films they just don't resonate or work for me. I don't hate them, but can't say I like them either. I wish her well and hope she continues to find funding for whatever she comes up with next.

I'm with you. Don't like her films much at all. But I'm glad she keeps making them and they are connecting with other cinephiles out there.

Yea, I don't know how she does it. They can't make much money. Yet she keeps being able to make them and doesn't let any of 'it' influence her vision. One has to admire that. I sure do. Cheers!

I saw Meeks Cutoff at the London Film Festival 2010. It was slow going but I was won over by the end. Really love that film.
