Story


The year is 1845, the earliest days of the Oregon Trail, and a wagon train of three families has hired 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 face the scourges of hunger, thirst and their own lack of faith in one another'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 a natural born enemy.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..a realistic slice of pioneer life that offers a disquieting alternative vision of America's most mythic location..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]
“..meticulous and immersive, Meek's Cutoff feels like history in three dimensions..”
by Scott Tobias [AV Club]
“..it's a gritty fable of fate that should rightfully move Reichardt into the top ranks of American indie filmmakers..”
by Chris Barsanti [Filmcritic.com]
