Capital Celluloid 2017 - Day 62: Fri Mar 3

Certain Women (Reichardt, 2016): BFI Southbank, NFT1, 6pm

There are still tickets left for this screening of one of the most anticipated movies of the year, plus Q&A with director Kelly Reichardt.

BFI Southbank introduction:
This London Film Festival Best Film-winner is an impeccably quiet study of three very different Montana-based women. Laura Dern’s lawyer is conducting a surreptitious lunchtime affair with a married man. Michelle Williams is Gina, a woman of frustrated ambitions trying to build a ‘perfect’ family home with her husband and surly child. Native American actress Lily Gladstone plays lonely ranch-hand Jamie, who enrols in night school and develops feelings for supply teacher Beth (Kristen Stewart). The whole cast shines, particularly Gladstone – sublime as the near-silent young woman struggling to articulate the nature of her interest in Beth. Reichardt’s delicate direction ensures that the minutest look or gesture gains epic significance, and the only moment in the film to employ scored music might just break your heart.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
