3SMReviews: Wind River

Initially, I stayed away from this film because I was annoyed that a movie set on the Wind River Indian Reservation starred two white people.* I’m glad I watched this story of a tracker and an FBI agent searching for clues to the murder of a young Indian woman.  The story is as bleak as the snow-covered Wyoming landscape, and the performances are excellent.

Cost: Netflix subscription
Where watched: at home

*I relented because I like Taylor Sheridan’s work a lot.

    Do you feel like it brings light to the fact that more Indigenous women’s deaths/disappearances are not solved than other groups of women? I feel like white people need to know about that terrible reality. Wow, there is even a Wiki page about it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missing_and_murdered_Indigenous_women

      There’s a post-movie, pre-credits informational paragraph about that very issue of which I was not aware. I think I read that the director wanted to bring such attention.
