Michelle Williams Gets Lost in 'Meek's Cutoff' First Trailer


Michelle Williams


Williams plays a member of three families who find themselves stranded in harsh conditions of the Oregon desert.

After her enthralling performance in "Blue Valentine", Michelle Williams gets another challenge to portray a woman trying to survive in the middle of a dry desert in "Meek's Cutoff". The first trailer for the movie has now hit the web via Apple.

The film is set in 1845, during the early days of the Oregon Trail. Williams' Emily Tetherow is part of a three-family wagon train that is guided by mountain man Stephen Meek to get through the Cascade Mountains. Meek, claiming to know a short cut, 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.

Bruce Greenwood takes the role of Meek with the likes of Paul Dano, Shirley Henderson, Zoe Kazan and Will Patton joining the cast ensemble. This drama is directed and written by Kelly Reichardt. Premiered in Venice Film Festival last year, "Meek's Cutoff" will head to limited U.S. theaters on April 8.
