The expanses of the American West take center stage in this intimately observed triptych. Adapted from three short stories by Maile Meloy and unfolding in self-contained but interlocking episodes, the film navigates the subtle shifts in personal desire and social expectation that unsettle the circumscribed lives of its characters: a lawyer forced to subdue a troubled client; a wife and mother whose plans to construct her dream home reveal fissures in her marriage; and a night-school teacher who forms a tenuous bond with a lonely ranch hand, whose longing for connection delivers an unexpected jolt of emotional immediacy.
(Kelly Reichart, USA, English, 107min, 2016, Blu-ray)
