Award-winning director Kelly Reichardt delivers an intimate and graceful portrait of friendship
Two travellers, on the run from a band of vengeful hunters in the 1820s Northwest, dream of striking it rich – but their tenuous plan to make their fortune on the frontier comes to rely on the secret use of a wealthy landowner's prized dairy cow. With their scheme landing somewhere between honest ingenuity and pure grift, renowned filmmaker Kelly Reichardt finds a graceful and deeply moving origin story of America in their unlikely friendship and fragile life at the margins.
FIRST COW is another stunning piece of cinema from Reichardt, whose previous works such as Certain Women, Meek's Cutoff and Wendy & Lucy have established her as one of contemporary American cinema's finest filmmakers.
