Wind River

In a Nutshell: Wind River (2017)

Wind_River_(2017_film)Hunter and employee of Fish and Wildlife Services Cory (Jeremy Renner) is called out to the Wind River Indian Reservation by Martin (Gil Birmingham) to track down a mountain lion that has been attacking his livestock.  In doing so he uncovers the frozen body of a girl from the community, thus triggering an investigation. FBI Agent Jane (Elizabeth Olsen) is brought in to investigate the murder, supported by local police chief Ben (Graham Green) and with tracking experience coming from Cory. Thus unfolds a gripping and tragic tale.

It has been ages since I’ve been so engrossed in a movie and really saddened by the lack of interest shown by the authorities over such murders/missing persons (the opening titles indicate that the story is based on true events, the closing indicates statistics of such incidents).

Excellent movie directed by Taylor Sheridan that is well worth the watch.
