Two travelers, on the run from a band of vengeful hunters in the 1820s Northwest, dream of striking it rich, but their tenuous plan to make their fortune on the frontier comes to rely on the secret use of a wealthy landowner's prized dairy cow. With their scheme landing somewhere between honest ingenuity and pure grift, renowned filmmaker Kelly Reichardt finds a graceful and deeply moving origin story of America in their unlikely friendship and fragile life at the margins.

    I want my money of the worst movies I’ve ever seen.
  • Weird start, but gets a whole lot better

    I had a difficult time understanding what was going on in the beginning, but I really got into it as the movie went on. I really enjoyed this flick. Weird, but enjoyable.
  • Your attention rewarded.

    Poignant and fulfilling. How to describe this film? Definitely not an "in your face" experience but rather a somber exploration of the human condition. Great character portrayals . The protagonists are battered by the world around them but they remain who they are while steadfast in pursuit of that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow even though they know they'll never reach that place.
  • Total Waste of Time

    "Origin story of America"? Seriously?
  • You couldn’t pay me to rewatch this movie

    Don’t waste your money. One reviewer mentioned that people who liked this movie were faux intellectuals, and I couldn’t agree more.

    Slow and boring, never finished
  • Excruciatingly slow, slow, slow

    By Izwongnumbah
    So slow, I fell asleep. I didn’t feel any real connection with the characters. The ending was stupid. You draw your own conclusions. The director would linger on a scene shot long after the characters were gone. Don’t waste your money.
  • Slow start, then a smooth trip

    By BlueDoors
    Yeah, asfter 20 minutes I was done watching this film. I stuck with it. It's a film of nuance, pacing, and friendship on the edge of society. A few moments of lives once lived.
  • So crappy
