You probably haven’t heard a lot about this movie, but it should be on your radar. Wind River is the directorial debut for Taylor Sheridan. Why should we be excited about that? Well, because Sheridan wrote the screenplay for the wonderful 2015 film, Sicario. So we all know the talent is there.
Another reason why you should be excited? This film has an excellent cast. You have Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, and Jon Bernthal.
Wind River follows a rookie female cop (Olsen) who teams up with a “veteran, local game tracker with a haunted past” to investigate a murder on a Native American Reservation.
The movie is already getting great reviews from critics. It currently has 23 fresh reviews and just 4 rotten. And if you’re a fan of legit thrillers, it looks like this film will satisfy your craving.
Time Magazine’s Stephanie Zacharek had this to say about the film…
“There’s something to be said for a well-crafted motion picture, cinematically astute, that demands that we sit down and pay attention for a solid two hours or so, with no intermittent fridge runs.”
Wind River will be released August 4, 2017. Check out the trailer below…
