Michelle Williams stars in this enigmatic unorthodox, haunting Western, seen largely from a woman’s point of view, visually exquisite and contemplative in tone.  It catches beautifully the shifting dynamics of the small and increasingly vulnerable group and gives a vivid picture of what life on the Oregon Trail must have been like in 1845.

A mesmerizing cinematic journey that is often as arduous and spare as the lives of its hard-bitten protagonists.”  (Ann Hornaday – Washington Post)
