Certain Women ★★★½

In what may be Kelly Reichardt’s most accessible film, a disparate group of women living separate lives in small town Montana share one thing in common: they don’t get the love and appreciation they deserve. These overlooked women lead lives of quiet dignity, even hardship, and their spouses, clients and friends seem to be turning a blind eye to them. 

Certain Women is a thoughtful, lyrical meditation about women who are bigger than the small lives they lead. Not quite the gut punch like Wendy and Lucy, but an aching experience nonetheless.
