Wind River isn’t a complicated story. An Indigenous girl is murdered on a Reserve, and as is so common with the rest of the U.S. when it comes to Indigenous people, almost nobody cares. Add in a tracker who is struggling with his own grief and some incredible performances and you have a gut-wrenching story that looks at love, loss, justice and what connects us all, in spite of skin color or zip code.
There’s a scene in this movie that left me a complete emotional wreck. That’s how powerful the performances are.
Brilliant. Must watch. And must watch again.
