Woman Walks Ahead ★★½

A slew of spectacular actors in the service of a patchy biopic that scarcely gives them the opportunity to show off... Chastain dominates the film as frontierswoman/painter Weldon yet the film is oddly disinterested in her artistic talents, opting instead to focus on her efforts to corral rival Dakota tribes into a democratic force. Historically, there's a lot of interest here but cinematically this is standard issue.
