“Wind River” – Movie Recommendation


“Wind River is a 2017 American neo-Western murder mystery thriller film written and directed by Taylor Sheridan. The film stars Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen as a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service tracker and an FBI agent, respectively, who try to solve a murder on the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming. Gil Birmingham and Graham Greene also star. According to Sheridan, the opening “inspired by true events” card[5] was a reference to the “thousands of actual stories just like it” involving sexual assault of women on reservations, his primary motivation for writing the film.[6]” ~ Wikipedia

This isn’t our usual type of movie, but we rented it because Jeremy Renner was starring.

This is a movie we feel is well worth watching. The story is strong, with strong women characters. The acting is first-rate.  The scenery is incredible.
