First Cow

First Cow ★★★★½

This film is beautiful in its own way. Slow, simple and moving. Loved how our two main characters came together from way different backgrounds to form an unlikely friendship. I loved the direction in this film as Kelly Reichardt portrays several themes such as the search for the American Dream in the 1820s, searching and fulfilling oneself’s passions and the value of a real friendship no matter the circumstances. 

This film is definitely not for everyone as its pace,  length, and long shots might cause people to check out of the movie. However, I found it touching and wonderful.
