Wind River

Wind River ★★★½

At times very hard to watch. Dark secrets loom behind Wind River's beautiful snow-covered Wymoing setting in this gripping thriller. It took a little while for me to accept Jeremy Renner as a serious leading man, but once I got over that I lost myself in the investigation.

I give a lot of props to this film for highlighting the epidemic of indigenous women being raped and disappearing without consequence, but did the story really need two white FBI agents as leads to make that point?
