Meek’s Cutoff re-teams Wendy and Lucy director Kelly Reichardt, actress Michelle Williams and screenwriter Jonathan Raymond in an unconventional western about a real life trek through the Oregon desert. The year is 1845 and Stephen Meek has been hired to assist a group of people on their travels but has failed to deliver on his promise. As the travellers become increasingly suspicious of their leader and his motives, the film builds suspense while retaining its sense of humanity.
