Meek's Cutoff ★★★★

Talked Virginia into watching this with me on the basis of Michelle Williams, since she and her sister have been watching THE GREATEST SHOWMAN an unhealthy number of times. We'll hit WENDY AND LUCY next, which should be right in her wheelhouse.

Love the early fade/dissolve from one walking scene to another, with the landscapes superimposing, and the editing rhythm, particularly an early cut from the ladies making breakfast fires while its dark out to the ladies walking behind the wagon train at midday. It's a quietly stunning film about a group of vulnerable people exchanging one unreliable guide for another.
