MIFF: Certain Women

Drama


 

The paths of three women living in Montana are told in separate stories that briefly intersect with each other.

The experience in store for audiences of "Certain Women" is a bleak take on the lives and relationships of women. A stellar cast deliver stories of yearning and isolation, and there is no action to speak of. Time ticks on inexorably and patience is rewarded by the eventual realisation that nothing of consequence is going to occur. What you're watching is so subtle that the extraordinary nature might only catch up with you days later. Every woman is an island.
