IFC Films Acquires Kelly Reichardt's Certain Women

Daniel Crookehere,with thenewsthat Kelly Reichardt's sixth feature film,Certain Women,has found a home at IFC Films after screening at this year's Sundance Film Festival to great acclaim but no immediate buyer.While some of her (unnamed) louder,male peers from the American indie scene of the ‘90s have gone on to beat their chests across multiplexes with Great Big Cinema,Reichardt has kept fixing nitrogenous empathy to her storytelling roots over the years and elevated them into a premiere form of living,breathing naturalism.Certain Womenstars Laura Dern,Michelle Williams,and Kristen Stewart as an intersecting triptych of Montana ladies,whose "performance style is as casually organic and democratic as in any of her more scrappily cast early projects,"according to Guy Lodge atVariety.

For longtime fans or recent converts evangelized byWendy and Lucy,Meek's Cutoff,orNight Moves,this distribution partnership is a particularly exciting one as it promises Reichardt her largest release platform to date – with no offense to sage curatorial lookouts Oscilloscope Laboratories and Cinedigm,this is a big bump in maximizing eyes on the screen and seats in the theater.IFC Films has yet to announce a specific release date but assures that it will hit theaters at the tail end of 2016.

As if upping the ante for exposure weren't enough,this putsCertain Womenin the excellent company of other,ahem,certain exemplary women from female-forward stories in the IFC Catalogue.At their poker table of daring heroines with complex agendas,you find no less than:45 Years' shatter-glass Kate Mercer holding a royal flush (which she'll soon discover is actually just an Ace high);Maria Enders and Valentine ofClouds of Sils Mariabluffing one another under the table;and the ultimate in unpredictable poker faces,Phoenix's Nelly.So welcome to the IFC Films party,Certain Women,and know going in thatTwo Days,One Night's Sandra has already paved the way in pressuring them to sacrifice a little extra dough when it comes to Oscar campaigning for a critic's favorite.But above all else,per Amelia,watch out forThe Babadook!

That's an impressive slate!Good for Reichardt...though I admit the only movie of hers I've seen was Meek's Cutoff,which I didn't love.But I saw it on Netflix when I was very tired;somehow I think it would have benefited more from seeing it in a theater,even though it's also a pretty intimate,in some ways anti-"epic"film...not quite a chamber piece,but in that family.

I like both Michelle Williams and Kristen Stewart a lot,so I am very curious to see them together in a movie.

Meek's Cutoff was insufferable,and casting three suspect ladies (who together have delivered some good and some really bad performances) does not inspire me to give this any attention.
