Meek’s Cutoff


Opens Friday, July 1.

Directed by Kelly Reichardt. Starring Michelle Williams, Bruce Greenwood, Will Patton.Settlers traveling through the Oregon desert in 1845 find themselves stranded in harsh conditions.

The year is 1845, the earliest days of the Oregon Trail, and a wagon team of three families has hired the mountain man Stephen Meek to guide them over the Cascade Mountains. Claiming to know a short cut, Meek leads the group on an unmarked path across the high plain desert, only to become lost in the dry rock and sage. Over the coming days, the emigrants must face the scourges of hunger, thirst and their own lack of faith in each other’s instincts for survival. When a Native American wanderer crosses their path, the emigrants are torn between their trust in a guide who has proven himself unreliable and a man who has always been seen as the natural enemy.
