Kelly Reichardt joins the western revival for the first time. On her journey to the Wild West, a series of difficult situations will put to the test the coexistence and even the life of a caravan formed by three families and guided by the explorer Stephen Meek. “One of the film’s many virtues is its fidelity to 1845 – very well outlined in the details – which, through carefully articulated metaphors, invites the viewer to bring the proposal to the present day” (Peggy Ahwesh).
