Certain Women ★★★

Is there a more "Canadian" American director than Kelly Reichardt? She should collaborate with Sarah Polley some time.

I'll echo the c/w and say the last story is the best and most affecting. Weird that there are still people out there who think Kristen Stewart can't act, considering she easily surpasses Laura Dern and Michelle Williams in this. The first story is good as well and I like the thematic linkage with the third one via rural law. I don't really get the second story w/ Michelle Williams. I mean, I "get it" but I don't really see what is so interesting or how it hooks in thematically with the other stories, aside from a surface level of being about a woman in Montana.
