Oscar-nominated screenwriter Taylor Sheridan makes his directorial debut with the final film in his trilogy of screenplays on the American frontier (including Sicario & Hell or High Water).
Academy Award-nominee, Jeremy Renner is Cory Lambert, a local game tracker who stumbles upon the body of a murdered teenage girl, frozen in the desolate wilderness of the Wind River Indian Reservation. Still trying to come to terms with the death of his own teenage daughter, Cory is brutally forced to confront his own past.
When rookie FBI agent Jane Banner (Elizabeth Olsen) is assigned to the case, she enlists Cory’s help to navigate the unfamiliar terrain and unforgiving conditions as the two venture deep into a world ravaged by violence and the elements.
Featuring the music of Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, WIND RIVER is a stark look at life on the edge of an imposing wilderness, where the rule of law is eclipsed by the laws of nature.
The film, which premiered at Sundance Film Festival, is a blistering feature debut for Sheridan, who was named Best Director in the Un Certain Regard program at Cannes this year.
