In 1845, three families traverse the Oregon Trail on their way to fertile lands, led by Stephen Meek (Bruce Greenwood), a wilderness guide whose supposed expertise might be a tall tale. When they lose their way in barren Indian country, willful Emily Tetherow (Michelle Williams) casts aside the subservient role she's been forced into as a wife on the trail to challenge Meek's authority. By realizing that the Cayuse Indian the men take captive may be their only salvation, she averts tragedy. MEEK'S CUTOFF is an aesthetic triumph and a vital intervention into our gendered histories of the American West. With Zoe Kazan, Paul Dano and Will Patton.
