King-Lu and Cookie, on the run from a band of vengeful hunters in the 1820s Pacific Northwest, dream of striking it rich, but their tenuous plan to make their fortune on the frontier relies on the secret use of a wealthy landowner’s prized dairy cow. Shot low off the ground and using, like Reichardt’s Meek’s Cutoff (2010), a square frame to give a sense of humble intimacy, the film eschews the panoramic grandeur of western myths. Set among outcasts on the edge of capitalism’s grasp, this is a rare tale of the blossoming of a heartfelt male friendship, one told with sublime gentleness and touching compassion.

“...there's something about the delicacy and modesty of what Reichardt is doing here that feels unique, even as she's transporting you back to a primordial, partially untapped USA.“  David Fear, Rolling Stone
