First Cow
Kelly Reichardt, 2019, 121 min

Acclaimed, award-winning director Kelly Reichardt returns with the eagerly anticipated First Cow, a moving, delicate and nuanced depiction of male friendship and the American dream, set against the backdrop of the Pacific Northwest in the 1820s. A sumptuous tale of pilfered dairy, sweet cakes and old-fashioned camaraderie, this is the celebrated magnum opus of one of cinema’s most vital independent filmmakers.
