Winner of the Un Certain Regard Prix (Directing) prize at this year's Cannes Film Festival, this intelligent crime drama with Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen is the directorial debut of screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (Hell or High Water, Sicario).
Renner (The Hurt Locker) plays Cory Lambert, a wildlife officer in Wyoming. When he discovers the body of a young Native American woman while hunting, the FBI come knocking. Rookie agent Jane Banner (Olsen, Avengers: Age of Ultron) is assigned to the case and requires Lambert's aid in the inhospitable, frozen terrain. As the puzzle comes together, we build a picture of both the present and past of this unforgiving and violent land.
Superbly directing his own screenplay, Sheridan brings his trademark sense of place, fully drawn characters and real emotion to this stylish, potent mystery, which also features the music of Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.
