CERTAIN WOMEN d. Kelly Reichardt, 2016 + Intro by Jason Wood, BFI Director of Public Programme and Audiences (29 JUN 18:10) / Part of BIG SCREEN CLASSICS: AFTER BRESSON… at BFI Southbank.

“Taken from Maile Meloy’s stories, Reichardt’s wonderful triptych focuses on four women (and, sometimes, the men in their lives) trying to get by in rural America. The narrative is quiet, elliptical, realist, and the performances low-key; the vignettes barely overlap. But the sharp sense of people in a particular kind of environment and the interest in exploring inner lives through external details are very Bressonian.” (BFI)
