Three sentence movie reviews: Meek’s Cutoff.

One of those movies were no one talks much, but man, is it tense in that way that you can’t really get around, just have to go through.  Michelle Williams plays it quiet and understated as a woman on the Oregon Trail.  Difficult decisions are made, not with the input of the women, of course, because who needs to listen to them?

Cost:  free from library

  1. Would you consider this a western? Haha. This is another one I've never heard of. I need to get my head back in the game when it comes to movies.

  2. It actually made the top 50 list of westerns I referenced on your blog. Wait, maybe it was in the 51-100 slot. But I saw it listed there! In my mind, though, this is an Oregon Trail story, not a western. Two totally different things.

  3. Bechdel? Did she talk to any other women? I like that you found a poster with her on it (hopefully that wasn't hard).

  4. She does talk to another woman, but it's about a man. And all the posters feature her, because this director loves Michelle Williams. They also did Wendy and Lucy (filmed partially right down the street from my house) but I can't watch that movie because I'm too worried about the dog.
