NOMINATED: UNCERTAIN REGARD, CANNES FILM FESTIVAL 2017

Straight from Cannes, this intelligent crime drama with Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen is the directorial debut of screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (Hell or High Water, Sicario).

Renner (The Hurt Locker) plays Cory Lambert, a wildlife officer in Wyoming. When he discovers the body of a young Native American woman while hunting, the FBI come knocking. Rookie agent Jane Banner (Olsen, Avengers: Age of UltronIngrid Goes West) is assigned to the case and requires Lambert’s aid in the inhospitable, frozen terrain. As the puzzle pieces come together, we build a picture of both the present and past of this unforgiving and violent land. Superbly directing his own screenplay, Sheridan brings his trademark sense of place, fully drawn characters and real emotion to bear. This stylish, potent mystery also features the music of Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.


Sheridan also possesses a fully scaled vision of our society, and of what’s gone wrong in it. He’s drawn to men of violence on both sides of the law, and to the intricacies of crime, but what he’s really drawn to is depicting those things as an expression of our inner hunger. He’s a bristling entertainer with the soul of a noir poet.VARIETY

After stirring legitimate excitement with his dynamic scripts for Sicario and Hell or High Water, Taylor Sheridan makes his directorial debut with Wind River, which similarly delivers shrewd insights into troubling American social issues in a punchy, action-and-violence-filled package.THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
