Over the past decade, Kelly Reichardt (Wendy and Lucy, Meek’s Cutoff) has been quietly establishing herself as one of the most respected and fiercely independent female directors working today. Her latest film, Certain Women, premiered at Sundance earlier this year and is now set to debut at TIFF before getting a limited theatrical release next month. The movie focuses on three intersecting stories about a handful of strong-willed women in Montana who are missing something in their lives. On paper, the plot specifics may seem somewhat mundane, but with a cast that includes Michelle Williams, Laura Dern and Kristen Stewart, you know this is going to make for a simmering stew of suspense and emotion. Certain Women hits select theatres on Oct. 14th; check out the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.
